DALLAS (AP) Former President George W. Bush will return to Africa next week to help renovate another women's clinic.

Bush's office in Dallas on Saturday announced the 43rd president and his wife, Laura, will travel to Livingstone, Zambia, in support of the George W. Bush Institute global health initiative.

The Bushes last July helped renovate a women's health center in Kabwe, about 90 miles north of the Zambian capital, Lusaka. Officials say that center has screened and treated nearly 30,000 women since opening last summer.

The clinic in Livingstone is scheduled to open July 1.

Following their trip to Zambia, the Bushes will travel to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, to host the Bush Institute's African First Ladies Summit, Investing in Women: Strengthening Africa.
