Excerpt
FISCAL 2002 HIGHLIGHTS: IBRD and IDA lending commitments increased to $19.5 billion, reflecting highest-ever lending levels by IDA, which reached $8.1 billion for 133 new operations. IDA?s strong lending program was driven by record lending to Africa and South Asia, which together accounted for $6.4 billion. In fiscal 2002 Bank support to HIV/AIDS (human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immune deficiency syndrome) projects amounted to new commitments of over $300 million. Lending operations were approved in Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cape Verde, the Central African Republic, Jamaica, Madagascar, Nigeria, Senegal, and Sierra Leone, and HIV/AIDS components were significant in a number of other new and ongoing projects. The Bank supports HIV/AIDS work in over 64 countries. By far the greatest concentration of HIV/AIDS activities supported by the Bank has been in Africa. To date, 16 Multicountry HIV/AIDS Programs (MAPs) totaling commitments of over $550 million have been prepared in record time in Africa to match the emergency nature of the epidemic. The MAP approach has involved extensive collaboration with national governments, partners in the Joint U.N. Programme on HIV/AIDS, bilateral donors, the International Partnership against AIDS in Africa, key nongovernmental organizations, persons living with HIV/AIDS, and other key stakeholders.
