Kenya Makes a Big Move on HIV/AIDS

HIV/ AIDs patients in Kenya can now smile after the national senate committee dealing with health brought a plan that will improve HIV/AIDS sector. The plan which will increase funding for HIV/AIDS treatment comes at a time when KEMSA is facing a big financial challenge. It can be remembered that in the past few months, ARVs were detained at the Mombasa port because of unsettled agreement between KEMSA and USAID.

According to Daily Newspaper, the Senate explains that increasing HIV/AIDS funding will scale up various initiatives that will help to curb spread of the virus.

Although the Kenya government allocates funds ever budget year for health programs, the funds are not always enough to meet comprehensive HIV prevention, care, and treatment needs in the country. HIV/AIDS response in Kenya has been receiving extra support from donors which include the Global Fund and United States President’s Emergency Fund for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).

Increasing HIV treatment funds will now ensure the sufficient running of the HIV responce programs.
