January 14, 2023

Following the declaration of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) outbreak in Uganda on 20 September 2022, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) repurposed core resources and secured additional funding from the UNDP Crisis Bureau to contribute $1,300,000 USD (about 4.85bn UGX) to the national response to curb transmission of the virus, minimize mortality and disruption of socio-economic and health systems, improve standards of care for affected persons and safeguard development gains.

UNDP support was directed at the following priority areas: (a) Risk Communication and Community Engagement; (b) Strengthening EVD Response Coordination at National and Sub-national Levels; (c) Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) with a focus on EVD Waste Management; (d) Human Resource Support; and (e) Socio-economic Impact Assessment and Early Recovery.
