Strategies for this NOFO are four-fold: increase fungal surveillance by building epidemiology and laboratory capacity; support identification of known and emerging fungal pathogens for timely response; promote workforce development and provide training in the prevention and control of fungal diseases and increase awareness of fungal disease among the public; and monitor and evaluate the impact of these interventions and assess and refine performance metrics. These strategies are intended to promote health equity at the programmatic, infrastructural and policy levels. This NOFO recognizes that recipients may work to build the capacity to prevent and control specific fungal pathogens or may respond to emerging fungal pathogens or issues, such as antimicrobial resistance.
