"In accordance with the Healthy People 2020 Goals for the nation, this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) focuses on reducing the proportion of adolescents and young adults with Chlamydia trachomatis infections, reducing Chlamydia rates among females aged 15-44 years, reducing gonorrhea rates, reducing sustained domestic transmission of primary and secondary syphilis, congenital syphilis, GC incidence, and reducing the proportion of young adults with genital herpes infection due to herpes simplex type 2. The new FOA provides support in five focus areas. These focus areas are:

  1. Implementation of community engagement methods (e.g. community-based participatory research) to achieve health equity;
  2. Identification and implementation of systems and environmental change strategies that (a) promote sexual health and support healthy behaviors and (b) facilitate community-clinical linkages to build support for interventions to prevent and reduce STI disparities;
  3. Enhancement and sustainability of partnerships;
  4. Support for communication strategies to promote STD program successes and leverage additional resources for STI control and prevention; and
  5. Evaluation of the efficacy of this approach and intervention implementation."
