Stronger health systems in Africa
In cooperation with the European Commission and the African Union, the WHO and the EIB have announced a partnership aimed at mobilising €1 billion of investment to support access to health services and vaccines and invest in the health workforce.
From a breakthrough vaccine against COVID-19 to clean energy in Poland or safer drinking water in Lesotho, the European Investment Bank finances sustainable projects that have a positive impact on people and the planet.
In the spotlight
The EU’s climate bank
The European Investment Bank is one of the world’s main financers of climate action. The decade 2021-2030 is critical to address our planet's climate and environment emergency. To achieve this, trillions of investment are required. The European Union and the EIB Group play a leading role in implementing the Paris Agreement. We place sustainability at the heart of our activities.
Outside the European Union, UK and EFTA, the EIB provided €7.2 billion of financing in 2021. The EU bank is active in more than 160 countries worldwide and is a key partner of Team Europe.
Since 1958, the EIB has invested more than €1.5 trillion in more than 14,400 projects outside the European Union.
