KENYA: Continued UK AIDS assistance


[This report does not necessarily reflect the views of the United Nations]


JOHANNESBURG, 30 July (PLUSNEWS) - Britain's high commissioner, Edward Clay, has announced continued support by the UK for HIV/AIDS projects in Kenya.

Clay, who recently accused Kenya's government of abetting corruption, told a local newspaper, The Nation, that funding for the health sector would remain on course.

He added that Britain would specifically support the work of the Futures Group, an international organisation coordinating fight against the pandemic in Kenya's Nyanza Province.

"We shall continue to assist in the fight against the disease, with specific commitment to what Futures Group is doing," he said.
