Description

This Annual Program Statement (APS) publicizes the intention of the United States Government (USG), as represented by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Bureau for Global Health (GH), to fund one or multiple awards to address the overarching APS program purpose. The purpose is to accelerate reductions in maternal,newborn, and child mortality and morbidity in high-burden, USAID-supported countries by increasing the capacity of host country institutions and local organizations to introduce, deliver, scale up, and sustain the use of evidence-based, quality maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH), voluntary family planning (FP) and reproductive health (RH) services. This main APS document (located under the "Related Documents" tab in this posting) outlines the goal, purpose, expected results, and priorities of MOMENTUM (Moving Integrated, Quality Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health and Family Planning and Reproductive Health [MNCH/FP/RH] Services to Scale), and may result in multiple awards issued under subsequent APS Rounds. Note: When referencing MOMENTUM in this document, it is referring to the full portfolio of possible awards under this overall purpose. This specific document is an umbrella APS and will not be accepting concept papers or applications. Prospective applicants will be provided a fair opportunity to develop and submit competitive concept papers to USAID for potential funding via discrete Rounds under this APS. For the purposes of the MOMENTUM APS, a “Round” is defined as a specific program description that falls under the larger MOMENTUM APS goal,purpose, and results but is tailored to a certain focus. Under each Round,applicants will first submit a short concept paper that will be reviewed for responsiveness to the overall MOMENTUM purpose, selected results, and Round’s focus and then scored according to the evaluation criteria provided in the Round document. If an applicant is successful in the concept paper stage, applicant representatives may be invited to join a co-creation workshop. Following the co-creation process, selected applicants (individual organizations and/or consortia developed at concept paper stage or during co-creation) will be requested to submit a Full Application, the content and format of which will be provided in greater detail by the Agreement Officer. Publishing this APS does not commit USAID to make any awards.

NCBDDD Outcomes and Developmental Data Assistance Center for EHDI (ODDACE) Programs

Competition Opens

Description

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) program supports the success of all children who are deaf or hard of hearing (D/HH) in the United States by helping to ensure they receive a newborn screening, early diagnosis, and timely intervention services. Without timely screening, diagnosis and intervention, children who are D/HH lose valuable time in gaining the skills that will put them on a trajectory to have language on par with their hearing peers in kindergarten and be ready to succeed in school. Additionally, among children who are D/HH, delays in language development are more difficult to remediate with late diagnosis and intervention. While collaborative efforts by CDC, states, and other partners have helped lead to the early identification of thousands of children who are D/HH each year, their developmental and language outcomes are often unknown, and these data are not routinely collected by CDC or state EHDI programs. Furthermore, it is currently unclear what actions beyond early identification should be taken by public health to help reduce adverse consequences of hearing loss and ensure that children who are D/HH are ready for success in early childhood. The current lack of public health capacity to document and assess the intervention services and associated outcomes of early-identified children who are D/HH at the state and national level makes it challenging to: Assess the developmental progress to ensure all children who are D/HH are achieving age-appropriate milestones and are ready for success in early childhood; Identify strategies, in addition to those beyond early identification, to help assess and reduce adverse consequences of hearing loss; Assess and document the success and impact of EHDI activities across the United States. As the first step toward minimizing significant language delays in children who are D/HH, the main goal of state EHDI programs is to ensure the hearing screening of all children before 1 month of age, receipt of recommended diagnostic services before 3 months of age for those not passing the hearing screening, and enrollment into early intervention for those identified with a permanent hearing loss before 6 months of age. Although there has been a significant increase in the number of newborns receiving their hearing screen before one month of age and number of infants diagnosed as D/HH before 3 months of age, over 1,200 infants annually (about 20%) either did not receive or were not documented to have received intervention services. For children diagnosed as D/HH and enrolled into intervention services, it is often not possible for State EHDI programs to gather, analyze, and use early intervention and outcomes-related data. This is because information about services received (initiation/quantity/quality/specific type of intervention) and outcomes beyond enrollment in intervention services are not routinely available and/or shared with public health. These data are essential to strategic partners at all levels, and to CDC, in their surveillance efforts to assess and ensure optimal outcomes among children who are D/HH. Specifically, the availability of these data to public health can help to advance the practice of state EHDI programs, drive quality improvements, and help CDC-EHDI provide targeted technical assistance beyond screening and diagnosis to state programs. NCBDDD can take a leading role in this effort by providing states with the opportunity and tools needed to gather, analyze, and use standardized and relevant patient-level intervention and outcomes data for infants diagnosed as D/HH. Previous projects have shown that it is possible for one center to facilitate the gathering, analysis, and use of outcomes related data across multiple states. This included helping programs obtain relevant intervention data and use standard tools to help assess outcomes. Currently, many states are interested in intervention, and outcomes-related data but lack the capacity to routinely collect these data for children who are D/HH. To further assist states and children who are D/HH, CDC EHDI proposes to establish and support a developmental outcomes data center referred to as the Outcomes and Developmental Data Assistance Center (ODDACE). This center will focus on providing guidance and technical assistance to a select number of states on the gathering, analysis and practical application of intervention and outcomes data. This is intended to help ensure all D/HH children are able to receive appropriate intervention services and reduce adverse consequences of hearing loss, to support their success in early childhood. The center will serve as an extension of the CDC EHDI team and complement current initiatives to expand the capacity of states to collect and use patient-level data to help ensure the success of children who are D/HH. This proposed center will directly support CDC EHDI’s public health surveillance efforts and its use of these data to inform and promote practices to help ensure children are ready for success in early childhood by: Gathering intervention and outcomes-related data in a standardized way to expand current EHDI public health surveillance activities; Analyzing intervention and outcomes data across states to assess provision of intervention services and outcomes; Identify and document factors that impact the outcomes among children who are D/HH (e.g., frequency, type, and quality of intervention) Using data to inform decisions and practices, optimize interventions, and support improved health outcomes by reducing adverse consequences of hearing loss and help ensure children who are D/HH are ready to succeed in school and beyond. As part of these efforts ODDACE will be responsible for working with and supporting participating states to foster and strengthen collaboration and engagement among strategic partners that serve children who are D/HH, and their families. Activities include, but are not limited to: Identify relevant data items and standardize definitions and measures related to intervention, outcomes and kindergarten/school readiness among children who are D/HH. Strengthen public health surveillance capacity to collect and use timely and standardized data on intervention, outcomes, and kindergarten/school readiness. Facilitate family engagement (as needed) to help obtain necessary consents in accordance with federal privacy laws to gather timely intervention-related data on children who are D/HH. Promote and foster coordination and collaboration between participating local/county, state EHDI and early intervention programs related to public health surveillance for intervention and outcomes. Develop and support the use of innovative methods to facilitate the timely and efficient collection and reporting of intervention and outcomes related data. Provide assistance to participating states in the analysis of data to assess kindergarten readiness and the use of findings to inform policy decisions to help children who are not performing on par with their hearing peers. Support the sharing and use of timely data among strategic partners at all levels, including CDC, state EHDI programs, county/local programs, families, intervention service providers, policy makers, and researchers. Demonstrate the benefits of sharing intervention and outcomes-related information with public health programs. Identify modifiable factors that may influence outcomes, beyond meeting the 1-3-6 months timeline. Inform and help educate providers and families across the EHDI continuum of care.

Promoting Internationalization of Indian Universities Through U.S. collaborations

Competition Closes

05/26/2020

Description

The proposed funding opportunity will provide insights on U.S. internationalization best practices to Indian higher education administrators from a range of private and public institutions. This exposure to discussions, presentations and networking opportunities will help Indian administrators forge collaborations with their American counterparts. PAS India believes that higher education advocacy organizations like Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA) provide opportunities for Indian and American institutions to explore common strategies and forge collaborations. Annual conferences organized by these two and other prominent associations or advocacy groups could be an excellent platform for Indian universities to meet, negotiate, and discuss with their American counterparts in order to develop ideas to collaborate. Collaboration includes setting up joint academic programs like joint Ph.D. degrees, study abroad programs, research collaborations, and potentially hiring young post-doctoral scholars from the United States. PAS India will work with the grantee to identify a cohort comprising higher education leaders from all consulate regions in India to be part of this group of education leaders that can leverage the AIEA platform. PAS New Delhi will take the lead in working with the selected grantee to identify higher education leaders who have demonstrated interest and have proven record of supporting U.S.-India collaborations. After disseminating information about this opportunity to education contacts, the project will develop and distribute an application to select best-fit candidates.In the application process, we will request the applicant to clearly outline how they will benefit from this opportunity to participate in the AIEA conference and the contacts they will be meeting at the event. We will target a combination of senior education administrators who have in the past attended these conferences and select some education leaders who may have not attended these conferences but have a clear idea of leveraging the opportunity. We will also support candidates who have clear and cogent ideas about how they will complement the AIEA experience by combining it with visits to U.S. research labs and U.S. institutions. Applicants should provide a coherent plan to utilize this opportunity beyond partaking in sessions alone in order to be selected. This opportunity will be to support intense networking and collaboration building for Indian universities.The AIEA conference is scheduled to take place at Washington DC in February 2021.PAS India intends to develop new educational collaborations and research partnerships between selected Indian and U.S. universities to reinforce our people-to-people ties, strengthen on-ground partnerships, and create economic value for American universities. Economic value will be created through academic collaborations that will allow for more Indian students to pursue partial degree requirements in the United States and by U.S. universities offering advisory and consultancy services to Indian educational institutions. The people-to-people ties of this program will be evidenced through the connections forged between scholars of both countries.
