He said: “The World Bank Group has grown rapidly and launched 100 emergency measures in countries. Other donors can postpone the program quickly. “He said that $ 160 billion is given 100th a month.
With the support of the World Bank, these 100 countries have 70 percent of the world’s population. . Of these, 39 come from sub-Saharan Africa. A third of the total projects are located in fragile and extremism-affected areas such as Afghanistan, Chad, Haiti and Niger.
Malpos said: “To return to growth, our goal should be a quick and flexible approach to dealing with health emergencies. At the same time, cash and other support for the poor, the private sector should be preserved and the strengthening and revitalization of the economy should be strengthened. “
He said that the program was prepared according to the countries so that they can effectively deal with the health, economic and social shocks to which they are exposed. Malpos said that this program will strengthen the health system and help buy life-saving medical devices.
