Ninh Thuan benefits from global fund to fight AIDS, TB and malaria
The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria has donated over US$176,000 to help the central coastal province of Ninh Thuan improve healthcare services.
The funding is used to run training courses for medical workers, purchase medical equipment for healthcare centres in districts and communes, and improve the managerial capacity of the medical system, especially planning, monitoring and evaluation.
The project, which enters the second phase this year, is designed to assist the grassroots-level medical system in 15 provinces across the country from 2012-2016.
The project has a total investment of nearly US$87 million, of which US$86 million is sourced from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
In the first phase, a total of 17 healthcare centres in Bac Ai and Thuan Bac districts of Ninh Thuan province has benefitted from the project.
