Financial bottleneck means more HIV death in Kenya, US Ambassador

Money means survival and the management delays in scaling up the HIV
response in the Kenyan public sector have left HIV+ patients
stranded without needed meds.  CNN
quoted U.S. Ambassador William Bellamy at the official opening of a
HIV/AIDS treatment clinic last Tuesday, “every day of additional delay
is a death sentence for Kenyans whose lives could be saved by
treatment.”  Management and financial architecture have often been
overlooked by NGOs, advocates and scientists.  Yet getting ahead
of the virus will require more effective organizational responses
including performance incentives and hybrid models of private-public partnerships (.pdf).
