Cabinet Secretary, The National Treasury

Today, Kenya enters into an agreement with the Global Fund to fight HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis (TB) and Malaria (GFATM) for a funding support of USD332 million (KShs 33 billion) for the next two years under the New Funding Model. This is a culmination of a partnership with Global Fund, which has supported Kenya since 2002. As part of our sustainability strategy, the Government of Kenya has provided counterpart funding amounting to KShs 2.6 billion (USD 26 million) in this fiscal year (2015/2016) towards AIDS, TB and Malaria control. Through the pledge of H.E. President Uhuru Kenyatta, Kenya has contributed USD2million to the Global Fund, making Kenya a donor to this noble funding partnership. This funding further strengthens Kenya’s resolve to provide accessible and affordable health to Kenyans.
