Welsh cash boost for African health projects
THE Welsh Government is to give £210,000 over the next three years to boost health partnerships between Wales and Africa.
The money — part of the Wales for Africa Health Links Network — will help to improve the health of some of the continent's most disadvantaged people.
The extra cash was welcomed by Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones.
He said: "Not only do these projects have life-changing effects on sub-Saharan communities, helping to train health care workers and ensure better health services — they also have real effects here in Wales.
"We know that health professionals from Wales who share their expertise as part of these sustainable partnerships, are able to develop their experience and skills and often find it highly inspiring."
