Health care is a human right. But it is also a key element in the fight against poverty and a prerequisite for economic growth. That is why the international community of nations has dedicated several Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as before Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to health.The projects of KfW Development Bank are part of this international framework. KfW provides a total of EUR 2.5 billion in funding for the health sector in 34 countries. Stable health care systems – which also incorporate the private sector – are particularly important to ensure that more people can benefit from good medical care.
