The announcement comes after months of uncertanity, red tape and conflicting media reports about the status of the grant.

In another interesting development, the Global Fund has also granted R250 million for South Africa to strengthen national and provincial capacity for prevention, treatment, care and support related to HIV and TB in South Africa.
