(Ecofin Agency) - The European Union is giving Zimbabwe $58 million (€53 million) to improve its primary health care system and address the most urgent health needs, the institution said on October 28.
The aid will enable communities affected by the Cyclones Idai and Kenneth, a few months ago, to strengthen their capacity to cope with food and nutrition security shocks. “This new package of €53 million is another testimony of EU's unwavering support to the people of Zimbabwe. In a difficult socio-economic time, we will strengthen our support to critical sectors such as primary health care as well as resilience-building,” said Neven Mimica (pictured), Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development.
The new financing brings to over $74 million the amount the EU has granted Zimbabwe since the beginning of the year.
