For the next 35 years, the focus of the bank was on infrastructure, but in 1979 it created the Health and Nutrition fund to provide funds for global health. Over the intervening years, the Health, Nutrition, and Population sector funding has grown considerably to the latest figure of £32bn over the last five years. $
