Kenya gets Sh35 billion boost for HIV, malaria fight – Business Daily

Kenya has received a billion shilling grant from Global Fund to help tackle HIV, Tuberculosis (TB) and malaria.

A Sh35 billion request by the Ministry of Health was approved even as some western donors remain lukewarm about supporting the country’s health programmes due to past corruption allegations at Afya House.

Most of the funding will be used to procure commodities and life-saving medicines for people living with HIV, TB and malaria between 2018 and 2020.

The development is a relief for Afya House, coming just three months after the US government indefinitely suspended its funding to some key programmes that are dependent on donor funding citing wastage and theft of funds at the ministry.
