Request for Applications: Identifying Promising Practices for Congenital Syphilis Prevention (Cohort 2)

Aug 18, 2020 | Rebekah Horowitz

In partnership with the CDC’s Division of STD Prevention, NACCHO will provide up to four local health departments with up to $25,000 each to implement and evaluate a program strategy that will improve congenital syphilis in their area. The objective is to help galvanize local efforts to address rising rates of congenital syphilis. Specifically, it will fund the implementation and evaluation of scalable interventions that focus on one or more of the following areas of congenital syphilis prevention:

  1. Linkage to prenatal care
  2. Syphilis and/or pregnancy screening in non-STD care/clinic settings
  3. Telehealth/medicine for individuals with syphilis who are pregnant
  4. Application submission deadline: September 21, 2020

Expectations
Funded jurisdictions will be expected to plan, implement, and evaluate the innovation or improvement over approximately 12 months, starting late 2020. They should be prepared to:

  • Develop implementation and evaluation plans (with support from NACCHO and CDC)
  • Implement the improvement or innovation
  • Collaborate closely with NACCHO and CDC to carry out a modest, mixed methods evaluation of the innovation or improvement (LHD evaluation expertise is not necessary to participate)
  • Participate in the dissemination of the findings so other LHDs can learn from their experiences

Interested?
View the request for applications to learn more about this funding opportunity.

  • Anticipated award notification: late October 2020
