Bill Clinton Foundation funds solar energy for 40 medical dispensaries in Tanzania

Clinton`s solar power for 40 dispensaries

By Guardian Reporter

Former US president Bill Clinton will fund solar energy projects in 40 dispensaries and health centres in Lindi and Mtwara regions.

Talking to President Jakaya Kikwete in Arusha yesterday, the former president said he had been satisfied by progress registered in projects undertaken by the Bill Clinton Foundation.

`I have decided to extend a similar project in 40 dispensaries and health centres in Lindi and Mtwara regions,` he said.

The Bill Clinton Foundation has already funded a solar energy project in three dispensaries and one health centre in Masasi District.

Implementation of the solar energy scheme follows a promise Clinton made to President Kikwete when the two met in New York in September last year.

The former US president also expressed his willingness to support the provision of social services in the country.

He mentioned other areas of interest as the fight against HIV/Aids and Malaria.

He promised to appeal to other development partners to support Tanzania.

For his part, President Kikwete commended Clinton for his commitment to Tanzanians, especially the needy.

`I personally, together with Tanzanians, value your contribution in the fight against malaria and HIV/Aids in this country. We also thank you for supporting community services,` said Kikwete.

The President said solar energy would improve provision of health services in rural areas.

The former US president arrived in the country on Sunday and launched an anti-malaria programme.

Clinton said the programme, which entails introducing cheaper malaria drugs, would start as a pilot project in Maswa and Kongwa districts.

The program is to be implemented jointly by Tanzania and the Clinton Foundation so as to ensure that the medicine is 95 percent cheaper.
