Kenya's Health Sector Coordinating Committee, a joint forum of government and development partner representatives, commissioned a study in late 2012 to determine the implications of a lack of Global Fund resources for Kenya related to HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria. Conducted in 2012, and later revised in 2013, the assessment was carried out by Health Policy Project in partnership with the German technical support agency, GiZ. The study analyzes changes to the Global Fund, (e.g., the New Funding Model) and considers Kenya’s policy risks related to future Global Fund resources. The risk analysis also includes projected financial gaps for the three diseases and set of policy recommendations to the Government of Kenya to mitigate the risks of a decline in Global Fund resources and the potential challenges of implementing grants under the New Funding Mechanism.
