HARARE, Zimbabwe, 17 January 2009 UNICEF Executive Director Ann M. Veneman has announced a $5 million incentive package aimed at rescuing the ailing Zimbabwean health sector. Speaking at the end of her two-day visit to Zimbabwe, Veneman highlighted the need for major stakeholders to put children at the forefront of their collective agenda.

The visit by Veneman, the first by a head of a UN agency in three years, comes at a time when Zimbabwe is faced by an unprecedented cholera outbreak that has claimed more than 2,000 lives over the last four months and by a heightened humanitarian crisis that has seen the collapse of the health and education sectors in the country.
