Funding for the Strategic Response Plan for the Ebola virus disease outbreak in the provinces of North Kivu and Ituri

The response to the Ebola virus disease outbreak in North Kivu and Ituri provinces in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is led by the DRC Government with support from an international consortium of partners, including WHO. Response work has been carried out within the framework outlined in a series of Strategic Response Plans (SRP).

The DRC Government and partners are currently finalizing the fourth Strategic Response Plan.

The table below outlines funding provided to WHO for the Ebola response since 01 August 2018. The table only includes funding that has been received, it does not include pledges that have been announced but have not yet been finalized. WHO does not track funding for the response provided to other UN agencies, to NGO partners, or to the DRC Government.
