World bank - World Bank Frees $300m For New Ebola Response Funding

The World Bank Group is readying a $300 million package of grants and credits to support the fight against the deadly Ebola virus in the Democratic Republic of Congo, it said on Wednesday.

It said the funding would meet about half the needs of a new Ebola response plan that is due to be agreed by the Congolese government and an international consortium next week. Previously the World Health Organisation had said the response would need “hundreds of millions” of dollars for the rest of this year.
