Andhra Healthcare Project to Get Rs 2,200 Cr from World Bank

Andhra Pradesh is set to receive a loan of Rs 2,200-crore from the World Bank for a project aimed at strengthening the overall healthcare systems of the state. The south Indian state was bifurcated in 2014, which had significant implications on resource flow and economic development in both states.

The Central and state governments and the World Bank on Wednesday signed the loan agreement for a $328-million project to improve the quality and responsiveness of public health services and increasing access of population to an expanded package of primary health services.
