The European Union (EU) has availed an additional US$60 million under its National Indicative Programme in support of Zimbabwe’s health sector. In a statement on Friday, EU ambassador Timo Olkkonen said:
US$43 million will support public health service delivery by strengthening primary care systems, capacitating human resources for health and enhancing community participation while US$18 million will support households and communities in vulnerable situations across the country by increasing their capacities to respond to food and nutrition security shocks.
