Ebola continues to spread across West Africa. So far 7 400 people have been infected by the virus and 3 431 reported dead. Sweden responds to the crisis by increasing its support for the fight against Ebola with 105 million Swedish kronor (USD 15 million), in addition to over 139 million (USD 20 million) already allocated funds.

The new support through Sida is allocated to UN bodies (SEK 80 million) and the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) (SEK 25 million).
