World Bank urges new focus on aid for justice rather than health and schools

Monday, April 11, 2011

The World Bank is recommending a major difference in the way aid is spent.

In a report, the bank says that there should be far more focus on building stable government, and on justice and police, than on health and education.

The report found that cycles of violence were hard to stop, for example in South Africa and Central America. In Guatemala, twice as many people are dying now at the hands of criminals than died in the civil war in the 1980s.
