October 12, 2012

"The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria signed a grant agreement worth $102 million with the Churches Health Association of Zambia [CHAZ] Wednesday," Devex's "Development Newswire" reports. Part of the grant -- $44 million -- is "'old money' that had already been approved before,'" Marcela Rojo, Global Fund communications officer, told Devex in an email, the news service states, adding, "The money is on top of the $141.8 million in Global Fund grants that the U.N. Development Program signed on behalf of the health ministry in 2011" (Ravelo, 10/11). "Activities implemented by this grant will focus on prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV, promoting male circumcision, expanding and sustaining HIV treatment, reducing new infections, and maintaining a high coverage of impact mitigation," as well as strengthening counselling and testing and HIV treatment adherence, PANA/Afriquejet notes (10/11).
