While turning the page on a financial scandal, Malawi still confronting challenges in prioritizing HIV interventions
Seeking to turn the page on a financial scandal involving the National AIDS Commission, Malawi has appointed new principal recipients to administer the $574 million it was allocated to fight HIV.
Malawi's ability to control the spread of HIV will be undermined by the structural barriers that prevent access to services by key populations: this was the message delivered to stakeholders participating in country dialogue to develop the southern African nation's HIV concept note.
A ministerial-level meeting took place on 25 March in South Africa, aiming to harmonize tracking, tracing, diagnosis and referrals for people affiliated with southern Africa's lucrative mining sector -- all of whom are at high risk for contracting tuberculosis.
Malawi’s preparations to develop an integrated HIV/TB concept note required under the new funding model have included the election on 12 February of two new members to its country coordination mechanism (CCM) with roots in the TB community.
Malawi’s health sector is grappling with a serious lack of trained health care staff that could have an impact on its Global Fund-supported programming to enroll a greater number of HIV-positive Malawians on antiretroviral therapy (ART).
Malawi has secured positive outcomes and achievements with Global Fund grants but needs to address weaknesses in grant administration, procurement and supplies management, and financial management, an audit report by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) has said.
In the first week of August, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) released seven new reports covering audits conducted in Burundi, Malawi and Ukraine; and diagnostic reviews undertaken in Eritrea, Gambia, Georgia and Peru.
The Global Fund today (21 May 2010) issued an unusual press release protesting the conviction and sentencing of two men in Malawi based on their sexual orientation.
On 14 April, the Global Fund signed its final Round 1 grant agreement. The $10 million HIV grant to Zimbabwe was originally approved three years ago.
Two Round 2 grant agreements have not yet been signed, two and a quarter years after approval. These are with Malawi, for malaria, and with South Africa, for HIV/TB.
