Kenya has allocated 900 million shillings (USD11.25 million) to buy antiretroviral drugs. AIDS activists lauded the move but urged to provide more funding as the money covers just over 1 percent of the USD959 million AIDS funding gap in Kenya over the next three and a half years. Another USD12.5 million has been earmarked to hire 15 nurses and five public health technicians in each of the country’s 210 parliamentary constituencies, according to Plusnews.
