Donors must clearly articulate:
– the source and destination of intended funds;
– whether funds are additional to amounts already committed to health, the region, or other development efforts;
– and timelines for intended disbursal.
The UN also urgently needs more investment in its central coordination services to track, monitor and coordinate funds for Ebola.
UN Special Envoy, OCHA, and World Bank resource tracking
Pledges collated from data sources including: OCHA, UN, WB trackers; press releases, information from government representatives, conversations with technical bodies and other research. Full breakdown of amounts available upon request.
Funds to address the short term situation on the ground. For example, surveillance, contact tracing, case containment, treatment, social mobilization, safe burials, infection prevention and control.
Contributions aimed at longer-term relief for sectors affected by Ebola. This includes, health system strengthening, global health security, additional economic assistance, food insecurity, and social protection programs.
Contributions for Ebola related research and development activities (e.g., diagnostics, treatment, and vaccines)
Key: N = NGO; Bi = bilateral funding; W = WHO; F = WFP; C = UNICEF; O = United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA); H = UNHCR; M = Ebola Multi-Partner Trust Fund (MPTF); AU = African Union
Indicates whether or not a country has taken money already committed for global health programs and reallocated it towards the Ebola response. It is worth noting, however, that while these funds may not be replacing existing health commitments, it is possible that they are replacing existing commitments for other development priorities.
Most banks and foundations are set up to give financial contributions and are not necessarily set up to facilitate the passage of health care workers or to provide in-kind contributions, which is why we have marked these as N/A rather than red. We will keep monitoring the kinds of contributions given by foundations and banks and will update the table to reflect non-cash contributions if and when they occur.
Nations included on the tracker either pledged over $25 million or are part of the DAC, G20, or Sub-Saharan Africa. Foundations or individuals that are included pledged $10 million or more
