The Award Ceiling for Year 1 is 0 (none). CDC anticipates an Approximate Total Fiscal Year Funding amount of $4,000,000 for Year 1, subject to the availability of funds. The Ministry of Health (MoH), in partnership with PEPFAR, scaled up implementation of Health Information Systems (HIS) to facilitate the generation of high-quality HIV/AIDS program data in Kenya. These data have since provided an invaluable resource for evidence-based decision making and policy formulation. This NOFO will leverage on gains achieved in the scale up of HIS applications as a catalyst for system enhancements. This will include but not be limited to addressing technical challenges around multiplicity of information systems, sub-optimal interoperability and challenges related to unique person identification. The NOFO will develop automated and efficient processes aimed at generating high quality and rich information products for timely dissemination and decision making. More robust, efficient, nimble and open source HIS platforms are increasingly emerging from innovations. The NOFO will therefore continually respond to technological evolutions arising from such innovations. Last, and in line with PEPFAR’s goal of building local capacity, the NOFO will support technology and skills transfer to MoH, county teams and service delivery partners (SDPs) for sustained and long-term ownership. Overall, it is envisaged that not only will the NOFO consolidate and build on HIS gains, but that it will also respond to the ever changing programmatic and reporting needs of the HIV/AIDS program in Kenya.
