The World Bank will provide us $300 million during 1999-2000 to Pakistan for expanding phase-2 of the Social Action Programme (SAP). A high-level World Bank review mission will soon arrive in Pakistan to formally approve assistance. The bank had earlier disbursed US $270 million for 1998-99. The expansion of SAP-2 includes improving environment and non-formal education. Some of the new areas of work identified in the SAP-2 are setting up of referral hospitals, primary to middle-level education, and providing more facilities at basic health centres.
