Kenya has signed a grant agreement worth $408 million with the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria.

The Kenyan Ministry of Health announced on X platform that the funds will be utilized over the next three years, up to June 2027, to combat HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria, as well as to strengthen health and community systems.

According to Bloomberg News, the Ministry emphasized that the universal health coverage aims to provide comprehensive HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment.
