HIV/AIDS Community Information Outreach Projects 2015

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) is pleased to announce the solicitation of quotations from organizations and libraries to design and conduct projects for improving HIV/AIDS information access for patients and the affected community as well as their caregivers and the general public. Patients and the affected community need access to the most up-to-date and accurate health information to effectively manage and make informed decisions about their health.  Health care providers and health educators also need access to the most current information to provide the highest quality of care. NLM is committed to assisting organizations in accessing the spectrum of information resources and services that are currently available.  The NLM is particularly interested in proposals with creative and different approaches to disseminate information to populations that have a disproportionate prevalence of HIV/AIDS infections in the United States. These populations include but are not limited to men who have sex with men (MSM), African Americans and Hispanic/Latinos.

 

Emphasis is on increasing the awareness and utilization of NLM online health and medical resources in the HIV/AIDS Community through the use of innovative and evidence-based projects.

Projects must involve two or more of the following information access categories:

  • Information retrieval;
  • Skills development;
  • Resource development and dissemination; and/or
  • Equipment Acquisition.

 

Significance is placed upon the following types of organizations or arrangements for developing these programs:

  • Community-based organizations (CBOs) or patient advocacy groups currently providing HIV/AIDS related serves to the affected community;
  • Public libraries serving communities in the provision of HIV/AIDS-related information and resources;
  • Health departments or other local, municipal, or state agencies working to improve public health;
  • Faith-based organizations currently providing HIV/AIDS-related services; and/or
  • Multi-type consortia of the above-listed organizations that may be in existence or formed specifically for this project.

 

Awards are offered for up to $50,000.

 

Quotations are due to NLM on July 20, 2015.

 

The solicitation for the 2015 HIV/AIDS Community Information Outreach Projects is posted on the Federal Business Opportunities Web site : https://www.fbo.gov/spg/HHS/NIH/OAM/NIHLM2015468/listing.html

Funding: Disaster Health Information Outreach and Collaboration Project 2015

Monday, May 4th, 2015

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) announces a funding opportunity for small projects to improve access to disaster medicine and public health information for health care professionals, first responders and others that play a role in health-related disaster preparedness, response and recovery. Beginning in 2011, the NLM Disaster Information Management Research Center has funded 21 of these disaster outreach projects.

NLM is soliciting proposals from partnerships in the U.S. that include at least one library and at least one organization that has disaster-related responsibilities, such as health departments, public safety departments, emergency management departments, pre-hospital and emergency medical services, fire/rescue, or other local, regional, or state agencies with disaster health responsibilities; hospitals; faith-based and voluntary organizations active in disaster; and others.

NLM encourages submission of innovative proposals that enhance mutually beneficial collaboration among libraries and disaster-related agencies. For example, projects may increase awareness of health information resources, demonstrate how libraries and librarians can assist planners and responders with disaster-related information needs, show ways in which disaster workers can educate librarians about disaster management, and/or include collaboration among partners in developing information resources that support planning and response to public health emergencies. Summaries of the previous years’ funded projects can be viewed at http://disasterinfo.nlm.nih.gov/dimrc/disasterinfofunding.html.

Contract awards will be offered for a minimum of $15,000 to a maximum of $30,000 each for a one-year project.

The deadline for proposals is Monday, July 6, 2015 by 12 pm ET.

The solicitation notice can be found on FedBizOpps.gov: https://www.fbo.gov/index?s=opportunity&mode=form&id=c681c3181b5fa1c831b46e6e9f465442

Grants and Funding from the National Institutes of Health

Thursday, January 29th, 2015

The Specialized Information Services Outreach and Special Populations Branch (OSPB) manages and develops programs to eliminate disparities in health information access. OSPB achieves their mission by providing community outreach support, by training health professionals on NLM’s health information databases, and by designing websites that discuss the concerns of various racial and ethnic groups.

As OSPB reimagines our NLM-OSP-L Listserv, we will continue to share NLM/NIH funding opportunities of interest to health professionals and public health workers dedicated to health information outreach.

NLM supports a wide variety of research-related programs:

For example, the NIH’s Resource Grants include Education Projects (R25). R25 codes indicate programs that promote an appreciation for and interest in biomedical research, provide additional training in specific areas, and/or to develop ways to disseminate scientific discovery into public health and community applications.

Thank you.
