Research grant: Sustained Release of Antivirals for Treatment or Prevention of HIV
The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage grant applications that address the long term goal and objective of developing sustained release strategies for HIV treatment or prevention. Applications may propose treatment or prevention products delivered using sustained release platforms (oral, injection, implant or direct delivery to HIV target mucosa) that will provide a minimum of 1 week for oral (treatment) or a minimum of once a month for all other drug delivery systems for prevention and treatment protection/efficacy.
The goal of developing safe, effective and well-tolerated acceptable sustained release formulations/regimens is thus to improve adherence by significantly simplifying dosing requirements while maintaining consistent and effective drug levels in plasma and HIV target tissues (CNS/CSF, semen, lymph nodes, female reproductive tract, GALT, etc.).
The charge for sustained release drug delivery systems development is to create strategies that deliver effective drug concentrations for longer periods of time, thereby simplifying drug taking behavior, increasing adherence, and providing more effective overall treatment and prevention.
A more detailed description is available in the full text of the announcement.

Services for migrants and refugees from Ukraine – HIV/TB care with a focus on key populations
Due to the increasing flows of refugees from Ukraine because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the EECA Regional Platform created a spreadsheet to fill contacts details of face-to-face and online services for refugees and migrants (with a focus on HIV/TB care and key population groups).
