Global Fund Unblocks Aid to Philippines

December 22, 2009

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria announced Monday it has resumed all funding for four of its suspended grants to the Philippines after the funds were transferred to new administrators, Reuters reports. The grants were suspended in September "due to misdirected funds," the news service writes. According to the Global Fund, malaria grants worth $31.4 million and HIV/AIDS grants totaling $1.9 million had been placed back into the control of Philippines organizations; the transfer of a tuberculosis grant worth $95 million is being negotiated, the news service writes (MacInnis, 12/21).
