CGD Experts Discuss 4 Recommendations On How To Best Allocate Ebola Funding

Center for Global Development: Committing and Allocating Ebola Financing: What’s Next for the DRC?
Carleigh Krubiner, policy fellow, and Liesl Schnabel, program associate, both at CGD, provide recommendations on how best to allocate Ebola funding to ensure “funds get to where they are needed.” Recommendations include: “1. As more money is committed, prioritize transparency and coordination … 2. Where possible, utilize low-cost options that are effective, efficient, and scalable … 3. Align financing for Ebola preparedness in neighboring countries with contributions towards costed National Action Plans for Health Security … 4. Anticipate the future — make sure that global health funders prioritize global health security and outbreak response in their operational plans” (8/2).
