Ebola Response MPTF 

OverviewEbola Response Multi-Partner Trust Fund

A wake-up call to strengthen the accessibility, resiliency and quality of health care systems and measures for everyone, everywhere, the 2014 Ebola epidemic tore through communities in Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and parts of the Democratic Republic of Congo. A precursor to subsequent epidemics and pandemics, it showed what can happen when governments and health care staff are not prepared, shedding light on healthcare, sociopolitical, and cultural gaps that must be closed to cope with health emergencies...then and now

In response to the Ebola crisis, the United Nations mobilized stakeholders to attain the highest level of donor engagement ever seen in a United Nations trust fund. Financing helped strengthen readiness responses to prevent the spread of Ebola and improve recovery measures in countries that bore the brunt of the crisis. Projects built and scaled up health care capacities and infrastructure in multiple sectors and succeeded in engaging and assisting the hardest hit communities.
