The Government of Japan renewed its commitment to Universal Health Coverage, through a N$ 24 million donation to UNICEF supported programmes, with a particular focus on ensuring delivery of safe and timely vaccines and bridging the gap for maternal and child health services in Namibia. A press release by the Japanese Embassy explains that N$ 10.7 million of the amount will go towards the procurement of essential vaccine equipment, in particular, Cold-Chain-Equipment, while the remaining N$ 13.5 million will be used to develop capacity and strengthen vaccine management, especially at health facility level.
