The Global Fund approved an additional USD $11,359,571 for Uganda’s COVID-19 Response Mechanism (C19RM) Funding Request.

This brings the total funds approved to USD $34,565,047 – to support Uganda’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. These interventions and activities were identified for additional funds/award due to programmatic need.

The additional funds will support the scale up of the COVID-19 Testing, Procurement of Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) and Strengthen Referrals for Gender Based Violence (GBV) Victims, as the Country embarks on a phased opening up of the COVID-19 lockdown measures.

The funds approved by the Global Fund under the COVID-19 Response Mechanism are to be incorporated into the current HIV Grant managed by the Public Sector Principal Recipient of Global Fund Grants – the Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development (MoFPED).
