cannot control and manage its waste. This
country has a large inflation of second-hand cars which do not meet the
standard emission rates thus leading to air pollution. Back on waste
management, this country has a reluctant government that has failed in
providing proper and secure waste disposal sites thus making difficult to
obtain clean water. Lack of clean water for the majority population has
increased the risk of infections. The unhygienic conditions have rendered the
country unsuitable for normal citizens to survive as well as children (Ngure et al., 2013).
Since more people are jobless or working in
the informal economy, the country’s tax has dwindled making the government

HTF is a multi-donor pool established in 2011 and is managed by the UN Children’s

the European Union countries as well as the UN agencies. The aim of the donors
is to improve the health status of this country by improving nutrition,
maternal and child health, and availability of essential drugs, vaccines, and
medical equipment. From 2003 to 2014, Zimbabwe was funded more than $707

Additional grants are also allocated to fight the diseases (Financialgazette.co.zw,

because most of the health programmes are managed using the donor funds. Lack
of funds had earlier on contributed to the poor delivery of health services.
Patients are left to die because of unavailability of affordable care services.
