Kenya’s new policy on domestic financing of HIV research

Kenya has launched an ambitious target to shift from overly relying on foreign financing to increase national funding of HIV research. The government expects to raise about USD109 million from local sources over the next five years.

Unveiled last month, the Kenya HIV and Aids Research Agenda (2014-2019) aims to increase domestic HIV research financing in the wake of diminishing external support. Kenya relies heavily on foreign donors to finance HIV AIDS projects (over 90 per cent of total in-country HIV research financing) and the newly launched policy is a major departure from this trend.
