The National HIV Prevention Innovation Fund 2018/19 is funded by the allocation from the Department of Health to Public Health England (PHE) for HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) prevention and sexual health promotion.
HIV remains a major public health issue in England but innovative, community led interventions have had a significant role to play in limiting the HIV epidemic. Following the success of the projects funded in the first three years of the Innovation Fund, PHE are again inviting proposals from voluntary sector organisations, with support from their local authority, to develop effective ways to address HIV prevention in communities at increased risk of HIV.
The grant funding is intended for projects that offer new and innovative ways of delivering HIV prevention, and that explore new ways to address high risk behaviours in the most affected communities. All projects must have measurable outcomes and the potential to be replicated and scaled by others.
The deadline for the 2018-19 round of applications is 4 September 2018 (midnight).
