Ending Poverty in Fragile & Conflict-Affected States - Country Results

December 17, 2013

While millions are stepping out of poverty in developing countries, some 1.5 billion of the world's poorest people live in countries where conflict and fragility have trapped them in a cycle of poverty and violence. Since 2000, IDA, the World Bank's fund for the poorest, has provided more than $22 billion in support for fragile and conflict-affected states—among other things, helping immunize 10 million children and providing prenatal care to 1.5 million women. IDA has also provided $4 billion in debt relief.
