The 2014-2015 Ebola outbreak in West Africa disrupted the region's health systems, job markets, and food supplies. Congress appropriated funds to USAID and State for Ebola response and preparedness. USAID and, to a lesser extent, State used some funds for Ebola recovery projects.
We reported on the status of USAID's recovery projects. USAID had completed 62 of its 131 projects, as of September 2017.
