This edition of Humanitarian Exchange focuses on the humanitarian crisis created in West Africa by the Ebola outbreak, the largest and most complex since the virus was discovered in 1976. More than 11,000 people are believed to have died and over 26,300 cases have been reported. While Liberia was declared Ebola-free on 9 May 2015, Sierra Leone and Guinea are still struggling to contain the disease and assess the social and economic impact of the crisis.

This review is concerned with the financing arrangements for programmes that address acute malnutrition at scale through the community-based management of acute malnutrition (CMAM). The CMAM approach is geared towards the early detection, treatment and counselling of moderately and severely acutely malnourished children, in the community, by community agents.
Five years after the Taliban seized power in Kabul, this issue of Humanitarian Exchange takes Afghanistan as its special feature.
