Southern Africa: World Bank Boosts Southern Africa Efforts to Fight TB & Lung Disease

Southern Africa's capacity to mount an effective regional response to tuberculosis (TB) and occupational lung diseases today got a boost following the World Bank Group's Board approval of a US$122 million regional project to support efforts to tackle the scourge of TB in four of its affected countries Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique and Zambia. It will also help strengthen these countries health systems. This Southern Africa Tuberculosis and Health System Support Project will target mining communities, regions with high TB burdens of TB or HIV/AIDS, transport corridors, and cross-border areas of the four target countries. Its primary beneficiaries will be TB-affected individuals and households in line with the World Bank Group's goal to support the most vulnerable by ending extreme poverty and promoting shared prosperity. This includes the prevention of communicable diseases, which have a disproportionate impact on the poor.
