Johannesburg - The North West department of health has transferred a R685m conditional grant to districts, the department said on Thursday.

This was done to promote district-based planning, improve services and enhance local accountability, spokesperson Tebogo Lekgethwane said.

He said chief directors in districts would manage the money.

The purpose of the grant from the national Treasury was to subsidise programmes against HIV/Aids, sexually transmitted infections and tuberculosis.

Lekgethwane said roadshows to orientate districts on the conditional grant had already started.

    But,were they not supposed to \hand-out\ thiese grants at the end of the roadshows?how do they expect ALL the districts to properly use this grant when their \way of use\ has not been communicated to ALL...?this is either stupid or its just a deliberate way of opening yet another corrupt and fraudulent loophole...
