Global Fund Round Five Grant to Zimbabwe Extended
November 24, 2009
The Standard/allAfrica.com reports that the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria has extended Zimbabwe's "Round 5 grant with additional funding of about US$37.9 million after the country failed to meet its targets." According to the Standard/allAfrica.com, the "gesture was in response to an application by the National Aids Council (NAC) earlier this year for Zimbabwe to be given another chance to meet the targets" and means that programs "meant to end in July will now be concluded in January" (Shoko, 11/23).
