Global Fund Suspends Mali HIV Grant
March 8, 2011
The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria has suspended a $13.9 million HIV grant to Mali "because of evidence that grant money has been misused," Aidspan's Global Fund Observer reports. "The exact amount of grant funds which remain unaccounted for has not yet been determined. The principal recipient, Groupe Pivot Sante Population, an NGO, will be replaced," the newsletter writes. According to the publication, the Global Fund suspended two malaria grants and a tuberculosis grant for Mali in December 2010 (Garmaise, 3/7). A press release from the Global Fund states that the suspension "comes after evidence was discovered that Global Fund grant money has been misused. It is part of a process of restoring confidence in the ability of Mali's health sector to manage Global Fund resources appropriately" (3/2).
