World Bank loan for health delivery

The World Bank has announced a loan of $44.6 million to support the implementation of the Mozambican government's Health Service Delivery Project (HSDP) for the period 2009-2014.

The loan was approved by the Bank's Board of Executive Directors in Washington on 16 April, and comes from the World Bank's soft loans affiliate, the International Development Association (IDA).

The total cost for the five-year project is $72.4 million. Other donors that have pledged to support it are Canada, Switzerland and Russia.

The largest component of the project is the improvement of health delivery in the three northern provinces of Nampula, Niassa and Cabo Delgado, costed at $42.6 million. The other components are boosting the malaria control programme ($13.5 million), preparing a national health sector investment plan ($500,000), and capacity building and operational costs ($15.8 million).

The funds will cover the construction of between 20 and 25 health centres in the northern provinces, plus houses for the staff who will work there. Some of the money will be used to drill boreholes to provide water for the health centres, and to install solar panels for electricity.
