Non-Profit Health Group Secures World Bank Funding

The World Bank tapped IMA World Health, a non-profit organization, to help build hospitals and clinics in the Jonglei and Upper Nile states of south Sudan. “Sudan is at the epicenter of all kinds of strategical challenges and of every communicable disease in the world,” said Charles Franzen, the IMA senior program officer managing the USD26 million grant. The latest contribution brings IMA’s total African relief portfolio to nearly USD100 million, which is primarily focused on Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
