Research, Care and Training Programme – Family AIDS Care & Education Services (RCTP-FACES)

  1. 1. Research, Care and Training Programme – Family AIDS Care & Education Services (RCTP-FACES) RCTP-FACES NGO SETS THE RECORD STRAIGHT FOLLOWING MISLEADING MEDIA ALLEGATIONS Attention of Research Care and Training Programme-Family AIDS Care and Education Services (RCTP-FACES) has been drawn to misleading media reports published in The Standard and Daily Nation newspapers linking the NGO to alleged misappropriation of funds in KEMRI. The Board of Directors of RCTP-FACES would like to set the record straight as follows: 1. RCTP-FACES was established in 2007 to support Repro- ductive health, HIV and TB related Research, Prevention, Treatment and Capacity building. It is duly registered as an NGO under Kenyan Law. 2. Since inception , amongst other projects, the NGO has been a lifeline to thousands of Kenyans especially in Western Kenya and has supported the enrolment of 160,000 and active treatment of 80,000 people for HIV through 148 government and private health facilities in 4 counties (Migori, Homabay, Kisumu and Nairobi) through donor funding. 3. The NGO relies on donor funding from various sources and collaborates with local and international organiza- tions; as well as National and county government to achieve its goals. 4. Contrary to media reports, the NGO does not compete for funding with KEMRI. Instead, the programmes undertaken by the NGO are complementary to KEMRI’s mandate, and a number of them are undertaken in support of KEMRI. 5. The NGO has robust financial guidelines and controls and all funding is governed by specific donor financial and co-operative agreements and rules. The audited reports are available for scrutiny. 6. Contrary to media reports, no funds have been diverted from KEMRI to the NGO since its inception. No Govern- ment or donor funds have been lost, misappropriated or diverted. 7. There is no conflict of interest between staff of KEMRI and the NGO. The staff of KEMRI who founded the NGO resigned many years ago and a vibrant Board of Direc- tors is in charge of the NGO. 8. The Board and Management of RCTP FACES are commit- ted to continue serving Kenyans by offering Reproduc- tive health, HIV and TB-related clinical care and services based on quality, integrity and accountability.
