The Swedish Government International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) has signed a US$15,2 million grant with UNICEF Zimbabwe that will improve the lives of many women and children in the country.

The Acting Swedish Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Magnus Carlquist said through UNICEF, many people are expected to benefit as the funds will be channelled to those in need.

UNICEF Country Representative, Marc Rubin said the fund will contribute immensely to the Health Transition Fund and Child Protection Fund, adding that it will assist in supporting young people's initiatives.

The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Labour and Social Services, Mr Lancaster Museka commended SIDA's contribution to Zimbabwe and urged other donors to emulate the Swedish government.

Zimbabwe has set 2015 as a target to reduce by half, the number of people whose income is less than the total consumption poverty datum line under the Millennium Development Goal Number One.
