The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria has allocated about 512.94 million U.S. dollars to Malawi for TB, malaria and HIV interventions from Jan. 1, 2021 to June 2024.
Mark Eldon-Edington, who heads the Geneva-based fund’s Division for Grant Management, made the announcement in a letter to Malawi Secretary to Treasury Cliff Chiunda.
The letter was made public by the Malawi government on Tuesday.
The Global Fund applauded Malawi for its efforts in fighting the three diseases through various interventions.
“The forthcoming allocation period provides an opportunity for the country to refine and streamline investments targeting this highly vulnerable population group,” the letter said.
Dan Namalika, secretary for the Ministry of Health and Population Services, told local journalists on Wednesday that the allocation will help Malawi strengthen its health systems. Enditem
