Our StoryOur Steps

From humble beginnings…

The Global fund Round 10 HIV programme is a single stream funding for the government of Kenya to support the Road towards HIV Free Society. This grant is managed through the ministry of finance for the state PR and Kenya Red Cross Society as the non-state PR. The phase I of the grant runs for 31 Months (1 Dec 2011 – 30 June 2014). The goal is to contribute to the reduction of new infections and AIDS related morbidity and mortality for an HIV free society. The project priority areas of focus are based on the Kenya National AIDS Strategic Plan (KNASP III) 2009/10 – 2012- 2013, which seeks to deliver an HIV free society in Kenya by reducing new HIV infections, improving the quality of life of those infected and affected by HIV and AIDS and mitigating the socio economic impact of the scourge. Cascaded from this national strategic document, the KRCS grant focuses on increasing access to care and support for the chronically ill, prevention of mother to child transmission (PMTCT),HIV testing and counseling (HTC), and post-exposure prophylaxis trainings for police officers and healthcare workers. Additionally, key populations – Sex Workers (SW) People who Inject Drugs, (PWID) and Men who have sex with men (MSM), considered most at risk (MARPs) of HIV infections are targeted with focused interventions. This Program responds to critical gaps in Kenya’s fight against HIV and AIDS..
