"In contrast to the 2014-2016 West Africa Ebola outbreak, the WHO response was swift. On the same day that the outbreak was reported, WHO released $2 million from its Contingency Fund for Emergencies (CFE), deployed a team to the region, and activated an emergency incident management system. WHO also issued a $57 million appeal to control the outbreak. The international community exceeded the request, having provided $63 million. The largest contributions were provided by Germany (€5 million), United Kingdom (£5 million), and the United States ($5.3 million). Other types of support included in-kind contributions for medical evacuations and intercountry air transport from Norway and the European Union, respectively; technical assistance from Germany, Guinea, the United Kingdom, and the United States; and the provision of vaccines to protect over 3,300 people."
