Global Fund Withholds AIDS Funding for Kenya

Kenya has lost out on more than USD270 million in funding for AIDS and malaria treatment from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, Sunday Nation reports. The fund refuses to reverse its earlier decision rejecting Kenya’s application due to technicalities and the nation’s poor progress. The financing for tuberculosis may be maintained, according to the newspaper’s source at the Ministry of Public Health and Sanitation.
