Germany has committed K1.4 billion (about $5.6m) to boost Malawiâ€™s fragile health sector.
Germany made the announcement in a media statement on Friday. German Ambassador Dr Peter Woeste signed the agreement.
â€œDr Peter Woeste, today signed the Health Sector Strategic Plan (HSSP) Joint Financing Arrangement (JFA) on behalf of the Federal Republic of Germany.
â€œThe funds will enable the Government of the Republic of Malawi to improve the performance of the health system by increasing the coverage of high quality health services, reducing risk factors to health and improving equity and efficiency in the delivery of health services,â€ reads part of the statement.
The ambassador said the package was a sign that Germany is committed to helping Malawi.
The Joint Financing Arrangement is the basis for development partnersâ€™ contributions to the Health Sector Pool Fund.
The Flanders International Cooperation Agency, Norway, UK, Unicef and UNFPA also promote health service delivery in Malawi through the fund.
