Ahmad Bakhit praised the Bank’s significant role in capacity-building and poverty alleviation in the country and welcomed the return of the mission and the hearing of their observations, regretting the circumstances in which the country was experiencing the suspension of work during the past period, especially since the project was directed at citizens and vulnerable groups and was supposed not to politicize such issues that affected citizens.

For his part, Mr. Peter Ban revealed that the capacity-building project was designed to alleviate poverty and that this improvement does not achieve access to primary health services and interventions during the course of work. The Ministry was selected as the appropriate entity for the implementation of the project.

Dr. Awad Musnad, Director of the capacity-building project, stated that the mission’s visit was supervisory and periodic and that the project provided health and social interventions in the area of health insurance, microfinance and training. The Government contributes an estimated amount to the project.
