Fighting Ebola

Ebola outbreak in some African countries has led to numerous deaths and heavily hit the economy of these countries. In this regard, in 2015, the Government of Azerbaijan assisted three Ebola-affected African countries (Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone) in their fight against Ebola disease in the amount of 1,000,000 USD. The aid was provided via United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).

In response to the request from the African Union Commission to raise serious concerns about the Ebola epidemic in the Democratic Republic of Congo and its consequences for the social-economic troubles in the region, the Republic of Azerbaijan provided assistance in the amount of USD 20000 to Congo.
