1 BACKGROUND AND JUSTIFICATION FOR EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE

1.1 Background – Floods and the Emergency Crisis in Sierra Leone

18 Aug 2015 description

Introduction

The outbreak of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in West Africa is unprecedented in its scale, severity, and complexity. More than 23,200 people have been infected by 15 February 2015, resulting in over 9,300 deaths. Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone are still affected by this outbreak, and are struggling to control the epidemic against a backdrop of extreme poverty, weak health systems and social customs that make breaking human-to-human transmission difficult.

I. Overview

The Ebola outbreak has substantially stunted development progress in the three countries. As shown in Box 1, the real growth rates in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) forecast for 2014 dropped in Guinea to an estimated 1.1 percent from 4.5 percent, in Liberia to an estimated 0.7 per cent from 5.9 percent, and in Sierra Leone to an estimated 7.1 percent from 11.3 percent.

Executive Summary

A. Background Context

Sierra Leone is one of three countries in the Mano River Union to suffer from the worst recorded Ebola outbreak since the disease was first diagnosed in 1976 in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The socio-economic impact of the disease has been devastating.

To date more than 8,000 infection cases and more than 3,000 deaths have been recorded.
Medical personnel are among the victims, with at least 295 health care workers infected and 221 dead, including 11 specialized physicians.

Getting Beyond Zero

From October 2014 to March 2015, UNDP’s strategic approach to the Ebola response was aligned to the United Nations’ 5 Strategic Objectives and 13 Mission Critical Actions to combat Ebola. In close partnership with UN Mission for Ebola Emergency Response (UNMEER), the United Nations Development System, governments of the three most-affected countries and other development agencies, UNDP followed a two-track approach to support and achieve the following:
1. Stopping the epidemic
2. Ensuring rapid and sustainable recovery

15 Apr 2015 description

The overall objective of UNDP’s Sierra Leone’s Recovery Programme from the Ebola crisis is to restore livelihoods and foster socio-economic recovery for those most affected, strengthen the government’s capacity to restore essential services and to ensure a rapid return to a sustainable development path, while preserving and promoting peace, stability and social cohesion.

This revised Emergency Appeal seeks a total of CHF 56.8m (increased from CHF 41.1m) to enable the IFRC to support the Sierra Leone Red Cross Society (SLRCS) to respond to the ongoing Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) outbreak for 6,348,350 people. This revision represents another significant scale-up of SLRCS activities, notably in surveillance and contact tracing. The revision has been necessitated by the decision to open a second Ebola treatment centre in Kono district after an assessment carried out indicated the need and notable increase in both human and material resources.

The situation

New Ebola cases in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone are declining, but it will likely take some time for the three countries, supported by the international community, to bring the epidemic fully under control.
