World Bank lends support to Djibouti in Reducing Childhood Stunting

Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

The World Bank has announced new funding of US$15 million from IDA to support Djibouti in eliminating childhood stunting aimed at providing 100,000 women and adolescent girls and 50,000 children with key health and nutrition services, tripling the rate of breastfeeding, and raising the percentage of children fully immunized before their first birthday to 80%.

The Towards Zero Stunting in Djibouti Project drew on global experience for its comprehensive strategy involving coordinated actions at the national and community levels, and a focus on scaling up the ongoing delivery of high impact nutrition and health services. The project will fund the objectives of the Government to expand the capacities of health facilities and community health workers to monitor and promote healthy growth for children.

Minister of Health, Dr Djama Elmi Okieh said, “Through our partnership with the World Bank we are investing in our people and building a healthy human capital that is key to Djibouti’s future growth and prosperity. The evidence is clear that the cost of treating malnutrition is twice the cost of preventing it.”

The World Bank’s portfolio in Djibouti consists of eleven IDA-funded projects totaling US$135 million. The portfolio is focused on social safety nets, energy, rural community development, urban poverty reduction, health, education, modernization of public administration, governance and private sector development, with particular emphasis on women and youth.
