Project Description
The Nutrition and HIV/AIDS Project tackles the most significant causes of disease burden in Malawi by focusing on (i) implementing and scaling up ? through public sector and community delivery systems ? the most cost-effective nutrition and HIV prevention interventions, and (ii) supporting the implementation of an emergency disease outbreak preparedness plan. Since the 2014 Government corruption scandal involving the misuse of donor funds, the Bank has been providing fiduciary guidance and continuing to contribute to the HIV pooled fund which supports HIV service delivery and coordination costs associated with the National AIDS Commission (NAC). The HIV Pool was established in 2003 after the NAC was created, and previously cofinanced by the Bank, CIDA, NORAD, DFID and the Global Fund. Furthermore, the Project remains as a major source of financing and technical assistance to: (i) implement Malawi?s Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC) action plan ? a proven and cost-effective approach to prevent HIV; (ii) strengthen national capacity in multisectoral nutrition planning, coordination, implementation, monitoring and evaluation capacity; and (iii) build national capacity to tackle sudden outbreak of infectious diseases including Ebola.
