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.

The proposed Programme spans over 18 months, starting in April 2015. Concurrently, UNDP intends to coordinate Ebola recovery efforts, control outbreaks, address the socio-economic impact and build the resilience of affected communities.
