NEWS

Tomorrow is National HIV Testing Day. A recent Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) analyzed data from CDC-funded HIV tests provided to young people in 2015, and showed that more HIV testing is needed among young gay and bisexual men. These men accounted for 83% of recent HIV diagnoses among youth in non-healthcare facilities but only 28% of HIV tests among youth in those settings. Find out more about National HIV Testing Day HERE.

Last week, the CDC released Surveillance for Viral Hepatitis – United States, 2015. The report shows a continued increase of cases of acute HCV infection. The increase in acute HCV case reports reflects new infections associated with rising rates of injection-drug use. Find the full report HERE.

FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES

Multidisciplinary Studies of HIV/AIDS and Aging - reissue
This FOA encourages applications at the intersection of HIV and aging by addressing two overarching objectives: 1) to improve understanding of biological, clinical, and socio-behavioral aspects of aging through the lens of HIV infection and its treatment; and 2) to improve approaches for testing, prevention, and treatment of HIV infection, and management of HIV-related comorbidities, co-infections, and complications in different populations and cultural settings by applying our current understanding of aging science.
