Announced on World AIDS Day 2005, the New Partners Initiative (NPI) is part of a broader effort within the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) to work with new partners, including community- and faith-based organizations, enhancing their technical and organizational capacity and ensuring the quality and sustainability of HIV/AIDS programs by supporting community ownership.
On World AIDS Day 2008, The U.S. Government announced the third round of planned grant awards under the NPI, establishing new partnerships through 19 grants.
These new partners will join prior NPI grantees announced on World AIDS Day 2006 and World AIDS Day 2007 in preventing new infections, providing care for people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS, and building local capacity. These organizations will work through networks of local community- and faith-based organizations, working to strengthen their networks capacity as well.
How the New Partners Initiative Works
Under the New Partners Initiative, PEPFAR is awarding grants totaling approximately $200 million to new partners to provide HIV/AIDS prevention and care services. This third round of planned three-year grants will be worth at least $52 million.
To ensure the sustainability of the response, NPI offers assistance to successful applicants, focusing on quality program implementation, needs analysis, and organizational growth and strengthening.
