Funding Opportunity: Routine, Opt-Out Syphilis Screening of Women and Other Individuals of Childbearing Capacity in Jails

Oct 04, 2021 | Shalesha Majors

In partnership with the CDC’s Division of STD Prevention (DSTDP), NACCHO will provide up to 5 local health departments with $15,000-$75,000 each for a demonstration project to conduct routine, opt-out syphilis screening of women and other individuals of childbearing capacity housed in local jails. The primary purpose is to assess the effectiveness of routine, opt-out syphilis screening of women and other individuals of childbearing capacity in local jails as an intervention venue to identify and treat new cases of syphilis. This is part of the larger, ongoing effort using multiple interventions to combat increases in syphilis among individuals who can give birth, as well as increases in congenital syphilis (CS).

The objectives of this project include, but are not limited to:

  • Evaluate the effectiveness of routine, opt-out syphilis screening of women and other persons of childbearing capacity to identify and treat new cases of syphilis in local jails
  • Design and pilot a model for collaboration between local health departments and local jails to serve the community’s needs for syphilis testing and treatment jointly.
  • Determine protocols and procedures necessary for this collaboration including for the provision of Penicillin G Benzathine (Bicillin L-A) on-site to treat patients diagnosed with syphilis.

Interested?

NACCHO hosted an informational webinar for potential applicants on Tuesday, October 26, 2021 to review the RFP and respond to questions. View the recording here and access the slides here. All applications are due by November 24, 2021 11:59PM PT. For questions, contact Shalesha Majors at smajors@naccho.org.
