The World Bank has approved US$44.6 million in credit from the International Development Association to Mozambique as part of a $72.4 million health care project.
Implementation of the five-year Health Service Delivery Project (HSDP) by the Mozambique government is planned to reduce the incidence of malaria, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, and child and maternal mortality.
The project will finance the construction of about 25 health centres, with staff houses, boreholes and solar panels, in the three northern provinces of Cabo Delgado, Niassa, and Nampula.
The remainder of the project costs will be contributed by the Canadian International Development Agency ($15.6 million), the Russian Federation ($7.9 million) and the Swiss Development Cooperation ($4.3 million).

Right now, we’re working with contributors on the ground in Ukraine and in neighbouring countries to tell the stories of people enduring and responding to a rapidly evolving humanitarian crisis.
We’re documenting the threats to humanitarian response in the country and providing a platform for those bearing the brunt of the invasion. Our goal is to bring you the truth at a time when disinformation is rampant.
But while much of the world’s focus may be on Ukraine, we are continuing our reporting on myriad other humanitarian disasters – from Haiti to the Sahel to Afghanistan to Myanmar. We’ve been covering humanitarian crises for more than 25 years, and our journalism has always been free, accessible for all, and – most importantly – balanced.
You can support our journalism from just $5 a month, and every contribution will go towards our mission.
