World Bank gives Malawi $17 Million grant to fight TB


The World Bank has announced the approval of US$122million for Tuberculosis (TB) interventions in four countries in Southern Africa.

The countries are Malawi ($17million), Lesotho ($15 million), Mozambique ($45million) and Zambia ($45million).

A statement from World Bank Malawi office says Malawi and Mozambique are getting grants, while Zambia and Lesotho are getting credits.

The project includes three mutually reinforcing components that will assist participating countries to mount an effective regional response to TB and occupational lung diseases.

It will support a paradigm shift in how the subregion prevents and treats TB by: (i) introducing a multisectoral platform for regionally coordinated actions led by ministries of health; (ii) supporting the implementation of the latest WHO TB Strategy, including the 90-90-90 targets by strengthening demand- and supply-side interventions for effective management of TB and other communicable diseases; and (iii) improving use of the latest diagnostic methods for TB and occupational lung diseases.
