The grant will support antiretroviral (ARV) treatments for those afflicted by AIDS as well as organisations fighting the pandemic, it said.

Togo's prevalence rate is estimated at 3.2 percent and access to ARV treatment was made free last November.

Around 9,100 of 26,232 HIV-AIDS patients are on ARV treatments, according to the national programme to fight HIV.
