Funding for Biomedical Prevention: Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission (MTCT): $615,000

Several new CDC partners have recently been identified through a competetive funding opportunity

announcement as approved under COP08. Many of these partners are new to the PEPFAR and/or CDC

planning and implementation processes. The amounts awarded differ significantly from the original

proposal amounts submitted by these new partners. The difference now requires the new partners, working

in conjunction with the in-country CDC office and interagency technical working groups, to revise the action

plans for FY08 and FY09. CDC is currently working closely with the new partners to assure their effective

understanding of the PEPFAR planning process and that action plans for FY08 and FY09 COP submissions

are in accordance with funding awards as well as PEPFAR goals and objectives. Detailed narrative

changes will be submitted in the January 2009 reprogramming submission.
