The Global Fund Round 10 HIV Programme is a single stream funding for the government of Kenya to support the road towards a HIV Free Society. This grant is managed through the Ministry of Finance for the state PR (Principal Recipient) and KRCS as the non-state PR. The Phase I of the grant runs for 31 Months (1 Dec 2011 – 31 July 2014). The goal is to contribute to the reduction of new infections and AIDS related morbidity and mortality for an HIV free society. The project priority areas of focus are based on the Kenya National AIDS Strategic Plan (KNASP III) 2009/10 – 2012 2013, which seeks to deliver an HIV free society in Kenya by reducing new HIV infections, improving the quality of life of those infected and affected by HIV and AIDS and mitigating the socio economic impact of AIDS.
Cascaded from this national strategic document, the KRCS grant focuses on increasing access to HIV testing and counseling (HTC), expanding services for the prevention of mother to child transmission (PMTCT), care and support for the chronically ill and services to sexual violence survivors. Additionally, key populations, Sex Workers (SWs) People who Inject Drugs, (PWIDs) and Men who have sex with men (MSM), considered most at risk (MARPs) of HIV infections are targeted with focused interventions. This programme responds to critical gaps in Kenya's fight against HIV and AIDS.
