The World Bank Group has announced that it will be investing about $300 million to scale up support for the global response to the Ebola epidemic in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

The funds will cover the Ebola-affected health zones in DRC and help step up the front line health response, deliver cash-for-work programs to support the local economy, strengthen resilience in the affected communities, and contain the spread of this deadly virus.

“Communities and health workers on the front line of this outbreak urgently need more support and resources from the international community to prevent this crisis from worsening inside the country and from spreading across borders,” said World Bank Chief Executive Officer, Kristalina Georgieva.
