World Bank Releases Funds for Zambia's AIDS Project

August 29, 2003

The World Bank has released $42 million grant money to support Zambia's multi-sectoral crusade against HIV/AIDS, the local Daily Mail reported. The Zambian Finance and National Planning Ministry will administer the funds through the Zambia National Response to HIV/AIDS project (ZANARA). Zambian Finance Minister Peter Maganda said the five-year project would need an estimated $560 million, $382 million of which had already been pledged. He noted that first-year activities would include efforts to provide antiretroviral drugs to prevent mother-to-child transmission and to help other people in need. World Bank Country Representative Ohene Owusu Nyanin said ZANARA is part of a multi-country approach against HIV/AIDS in Africa.
