Via ReliefWeb, a report from the Government of Canada: Canada Announces Emergency Contribution to Fight Ebola Virus Outbreak - Guinea. Excerpt:
The Government of Canada is contributing $1,285,000 to help address the current outbreak of the Ebola virus in West Africa:
The Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada’s (DFATD) International Humanitarian Assistance Program is contributing $700,000 to support humanitarian interventions to control the spread of the virus in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone and to reduce mortality in the affected populations.
The Public Health Agency of Canada will provide $200,000 to the World Health Organization (WHO) through the International Health Grants Program. These funds will support the WHO’s request to member countries to help support in-country operational costs and the coordination and deployment of international technical expertise.
Through the Emergency Disaster Assistance Fund, an ongoing DFATD-funded project with the Canadian Red Cross, the Canadian Red Cross has automatically allocated $35,000 to an International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) appeal responding to the outbreak. DFATD’s Global Partnership Program will provide $350,000 to the WHO to support complementary security-relevant response activities, including the deployment and sustainment of an international outbreak-response team.
