Preparatory Meeting Co-host

Kenya has been part of the Global Fund partnership since 2003. During this time, significant progress has been made in the fight against HIV, tuberculosis and malaria in the country.  

Key achievements in the country include

  • Between 2010 and 2020, the number of AIDS-related deaths annually decreased from approximately 53,000 to 19,000.
  • The number of people living with HIV receiving antiretroviral treatment increased from 31% in 2010 to 86% in 2020.
  • Coverage of medication that prevents mother to-child transmission of HIV increased from 55% in 2010 to 94% in 2020.
  • TB treatment coverage increased from 45% in 2010 to 60% in 2019.
  • Strong collaboration between TB and HIV service delivery has resulted in nearly universal screening and treatment of TB/HIV co-infected patients. In 2020, 98% of TB patients knew their HIV status and 97% of TB patients that tested positive for HIV were on antiretroviral therapy during TB treatment.
  • Kenya has successfully implemented three long-lasting insecticidal net campaigns since 2014, with more than 42 million mosquito nets distributed to protect people from malaria.

Private sector partnership

Since 2010, Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited has partnered with the Global Fund in Kenya. The partnership works to improve maternal and child health by integrating quality HIV, TB and malaria services in antenatal and postnatal care across the country as well as in Nigeria and Tanzania. In 2023, it is estimated that the project will train 720 health workers at 61 facilities serving over 205,000 pregnant women annually in Kenya alone.
