Executive Summary

Kenya has launched a $180 million five-year programme to tackle the HIV/AIDS epidemic that is now responsible for an estimated 600 deaths a day. Although firm plans have yet to be drawn up, the government has pledged to expand clinical services, including the construction of an HIV testing centre in Nairobi. Japan, the UK, the US, Germany and the World Bank have recently announced new funding for this and other health programmes in Kenya, Africa Health reports. The epidemic is said to be costing the economy around $2.7 million per day. Meanwhile, Kenya's health ministry is investigating the potential inaccuracy of test results, following recent inconsistencies in prevalence data reported in parts of the country.
