KfW Entwicklungsbank finances investments and accompanying consulting services in developing countries. It carries out its work on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
KfW Entwicklungsbank is committed to the primary goal of German development cooperation, namely to sustainably improve the economic and social conditions of the people in developing countries. As the implementing agency of Financial Cooperation for the German government, KfW Entwicklungsbank supports developing countries with investments in sectors such as infrastructure, financial systems and environmental protection as well as in the health sector, where the objective is to assist partner countries in their efforts to improve the health situation of their population.
KfW Entwicklungsbank collaborates closely with national and international partners in the framework of bilateral and multilateral health programmes. Numerous cooperation programs with GTZ and co-financed programs with other strategic partners like the World Bank, USAID, UNAIDS and bilateral partners, as well as contributions to Swaps and basket funding arrangements in health are examples of such collaboration.
