$84-Million Grant to Zimbabwe to Reach Universal Access in 2012
The Global Fund has disbursed $84 million originally scheduled for 2014 to help Zimbabwe to achieve universal coverage of antiretrovirals (ARVs) by the end of 2012.
The $84 million is part of an HIV grant worth $204 million that began in 2010, and was renewed in June 2012. The grant focuses on prevention and treatment for young people, people living with HIV, women and children. The $84 million, however, will be used specifically for treatment.
The Global Fund said in a statement that Zimbabwe is expected to reach 85% of adults in need of treatment by the end of the year. Many countries have defined "universal coverage" as at least 80% of people in need of treatment.View Full Article
