IPS Examines Subsidized Malaria Drugs In Kenya
Inter Press Service looks at the roll out of the Affordable Medicines Facility-malaria (AMFm) in Kenya. The program, which is managed by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, makes subsidized malaria medications available through private pharmacies in seven other pilot countriesÂ â€“ Cambodia, Ghana, Madagascar, Niger, Nigeria, Tanzania and Uganda. In Kenya, some of the pharmacies have not passed along the subsidized drugs savings to their customers, so “the Kenyan government has embarked on awareness campaigns through the media to inform Kenyans of the availability of the drugs, and the recommended prices per dose” (Esipisu, 5/19).
