Healthcare to Improve in Mozambique

Mozambique recently received a $44.6 million credit towards improving healthcare from the World Bank. This money will fund the 2009-2014 Government of Mozambique's Health Service Delivery Project. The project will include the construction of 20 new healthcare centers, along with housing for health workers. Along with that, the project will establish community outreach programs educating people about disease prevention and healthy lifestyles. With the help of this new funding, Mozambique will be further on its way to acheiving the 4th and 5th Millennium Development Goals concerning child and maternal mortality, as well as HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other disease prevention.
