Ban on the release of funds amounting $367 million for Uganda in order to combat HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria has been lifted. Uganda was funded with more than $367 million in 2002 for disease management.
The Global community banned the funding to Uganda as they feel that the fund was not utilized properly and the country had a serious mismanagement of funds. The ban on the funding was released after the global community was reassured by Uganda by appointing International auditors Ernst and Young to maintain the details of money spend over purchase and spending for medicines and condoms. The Ugandan Government and Global Fund have now found a new agreement and more proper co-ordination on fund allotment and spending.
