Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) will work with the Naval Health Research Center to establish policies and adapt prevention programs for HIV and AIDS under a potential five-year, $14 million contract.
The Defense Department HIV/AIDS Prevention Program aims to help U.S. allies reduce the number of cases in their military forces, Leidos said Monday.
Steve Comber, president of Leidos’ health group, said the company will seek to help “NHRC, the Department of Defense and other allied nations in their efforts… to mitigate the HIV epidemic and prevent the AIDS virus from spreading further.”
Contract work includes HIV/AIDS-related policy development for foreign military personnel, program implementation, military personnel training on program maintenance and evaluation, as well as program integration.
Leidos will carry out the work in San Diego.
