Pledging Conference for the Contingency Fund for Emergencies (CFE)

Dates: 26 March 2018, at 14:00-16:00
Place: Geneva, Switzerland

A Pledging Conference for the Contingency Fund for Emergencies (CFE) will take place on Monday 26 March 2018 from 14:00 to 16:00 in the WHO headquarters.

The Contingency Fund for Emergencies (CFE) was established by the World Health Assembly in May 2015 following a review of WHO’s response to the 2014 Ebola outbreak in West Africa. During the early stages of the response to the outbreak, a lack of immediate funding was a contributing factor hampering the ability of WHO to act quickly.
