Bangladesh fights AI with aid from World Bank
The World Bank is likely to provide Bangladesh
with a loan of US$16.5 million within a year to design specific programmes in
tackling the risks of avian flu.
However, the pipeline commitment is tentative
and the specific amounts and timing are subject to change as well as the
existing projects would require restructuring, a seminar on Avian and Human Influenza
(AHI) was told
in Singapore yesterday.
The bank's board of executive directors endorsed the programme in January
this year in Beijing with a pledge of US$1.9 billion dollars.
