WASHINGTON, September 25, 2014-Following alarming evidence of the spread of the Ebola epidemic in West Africa, the World Bank Group today announced that it will nearly double its financing to $400 million to help the worst-affected countries address the emergency and build stronger health systems for the years ahead.

This represents $170 million in new funding. With today's announcement, the Bank will put $230 million toward the emergency response and $170 million for medium- and long-term projects. The new resources - which the World Bank's Board of Executive Directors will consider in the coming weeks - will be targeted at rapidly increasing the health care workforce and purchasing needed supplies in order to bring care and treatment to all parts of the affected countries. The funding also is aimed at building a stronger health care system because it will aim to train cadres of health workers to bolster care at a community level throughout the affected region.
