Cambodian Government’s Dispute Over Global Fund Expense Payments Holding Up Malaria Grant, Guardian Reports
The Guardian: Cambodia’s battle against malaria put at risk as expenses row holds up funds
“Cambodia’s fight against malaria is at risk of being derailed because of a dispute over expenses payments between the Cambodian government and the Global Fund, the biggest donor to the country’s malaria program. … According to a source close to the Global Fund in Cambodia, the Cambodian government is refusing to sign a funding agreement for a $12m grant, which could have been put to use since 1 July, because it objects to a requirement to account for travel and accommodation costs…” (Elliot, 10/19).
