ABCs of IDA: Thematic and Country Results

For nearly 60 years, the International Development Association (IDA), the World Bank’s fund for the poorest, has taken on the most difficult and complex challenges. One of the largest sources of development finance, IDA provides support for health, education, infrastructure, agriculture, economic, and institutional development to the world’s 74 poorest countries.

With IDA’s help, hundreds of millions of people have escaped poverty—through the creation of jobs, access to clean water, schools, roads, nutrition, electricity, and more.
