KC CARE is seeking applicants for an External Evaluator for Get Tested KC: A Public Health Initiative to end the HIV Epidemic. RFP Due 4/17
Get Tested KC aims to test everyone in Kansas City, 13 and older for HIV. To accomplish this ambitious goal, the initiative will work with local and regional health systems to implement opt-out HIV testing as a routine standard of care; increase outreach testing throughout the metro region; and launch a major marketing and education campaign to reduce stigma surrounding HIV. The initial HIV test is the first step of a coordinated and streamlined response. People who test positive for HIV will be linked to care in order to rapidly start treatment and people who test negative for HIV will explore appropriate prevention options, including PrEP.
The external evaluator will work closely with KC CARE administrative staff to formalize a monitoring and evaluation plan and provide regular progress updates, including annual reports. See request for proposal document for detailed information on contract period, budget, scope of work, application requirements, and selection criteria.
