http://www.worldbank.org/ida/country/... - Niger's Minister of Economic Planning, Amadou Boubacar Cisse, speaks in April 2013 about how IDA has supported the country's development. IDA is the World Bank's fund for the 82 poorest countries in the world.
Over the past two decades, Niger's social indicators have improved significantly: • The gross primary school enrollment rate jumped to 76 percent in 2011, up from about 29 percent in the early 1990s; the ratio of girls to boys in primary schools increased from 25 to 40 percent over the same period. • The mortality rate for children under 5 decreased from 320 to 130 per thousand between 1990 and 2010. • Prevalence of HIV/AIDS was 0.7 percent as of 2012, one of the lowest rates in Sub-Saharan Africa.
