Sierra Leone AIDS Agency Sacks 30 NGOs Over Funds Abuse

October 3, 2006

Citing poor management of project funds, Sierra Leone's National AIDS Secretariat has terminated the contracts of 30 local nongovernmental organizations. Abdul Rahman Sesay, deputy director of NAS, said the NGOs had failed "to account for the use of some 600,000 US dollars (?470,000) allocated to projects between 2002 and 2004." Sixteen of the 30 NGOs provided reports on how they spent the money; however, "their reports were unsatisfactory," Sesay said, and they were determined to have defaulted on the terms of their NAS contracts. Sesay said NAS has revised its fund allocation mechanism to channel money through local government councils for distribution. NAS is funded by international donors, including the World Bank and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria.
