Belize to Receive Aid from Japan for Health Services

The Belize Ministry of Health has been awarded $6 million in grants from the Japanese Social Development Fund (JSDF) through the World Bank. Health Minister Pablo Marin said the money will be used to support greater access to quality health services for Belize’s children and to encourage healthy lifestyle practices and behaviors.

The project will address malnutrition in children five and under; it will encourage healthy lifestyle practices in children five and above and it will strengthen community-based health services through mobile clinics and community health workers. It will also improve on basic structural upgrading to health posts and improvements to other related facilities.
