Belize gets $6 million grant from Japan to improve 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.

In making the announcement on Tuesday, Health Minister Pablo Marin said the money will be used to support the provision of greater access to quality health services for Belize's children and to encourage healthy lifestyle practices and behaviours.

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.

Research, monitoring and evaluation will provide a continuing evidence basis for the implementation of the project.

The money will be spent in the Toledo district in the southern end of Belize by empowering the local communities and schools; by helping to improve the overall quality of health services and by promoting healthy lifestyle choices.

Japan gives Ministry of health a $6 Million injection boost

The health sector received a substantial boost from Japan. The Ministry of Health was awarded a grant of six million dollars from the Japanese Social Development Fund. The funds are earmarked for a project on malnutrition in children under five years old. It is also expected to encourage healthy lifestyles for children five years and older, as well as to upgrade public health facilities. The Toledo District will have special focus; E-health activities will be introduced, including the provision of internet communication links, connecting hospitals, polyclinics and satellite clinics within the district. While the Ministry of Health is the recipient of the grant, the Toledo District Health Council will be implementing the project.
