The World Bank’s Board of Executive Directors today approved a US$20 million credit from the International Development Association (IDA) for the Cambodia COVID-19 Emergency Response Project, as part of the first tranche of emergency support operations through a dedicated fast-track COVID-19 facility.

“This fast-tracked financing will help Cambodia confront this unprecedented global health emergency by sourcing much-needed medical supplies and facilities to diagnose and treat COVID-19, reduce the spread of infection, strengthen pandemic response capabilities, and shorten the time to recovery for both people and the economy,” said Inguna Dobraja, World Bank Country Manager for Cambodia.
