Global Fund Freezes Zambia Aid Over Fraud Concerns
June 16, 2010
"The Global Fund [to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria] has suspended more than $300 million in health assistance to Zambia because of concerns about corruption," Reuters reports. The cut comes one year after Sweden and the Netherlands suspended $33 million "due to a missing $5 million" (Mfula, 6/15). According to the Post Online, "[t]he Global Fund's Office of the Inspector General (OIG) has concluded that there was fraud in connection with one or more of the grants" (Saluseki, 6/16).
