Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to the AFDB website:

The objectives of the emergency assistance operation are: (i) To stop transmission of Ebola infection in Uganda within two generations of transmission and prevent new outbreaks in non-affected areas. (ii) To minimize morbidity and mortality due to Ebola; and (iii)To facilitate effective national and international health sector coordination of the Ebola response.

The proposed operation is a USD 1,000,000 grant from the Special Relief Fund for Emergency Assistance to the Republic of Uganda to emergency support to Ebola virus disease response activities. Indeed, on September 20, following one confirmed case, the Government of Uganda (GOU) announced a new Sudan Ebola virus disease outbreak in Ngabano Village of Madudu sub-county, Mubende district. At the same time, two sub-counties; Kiruma and Madudu had reported a cluster of six unexplained deaths that had occurred between 1st and 15th September 2022 which have been later classified as probable cases of Sudan Ebola virus. Since then, the outbreak has spread to other six districts of Kyegegwa, Kassanda, Bunyangabu, Kagadi, Wakiso and Kampala. Activities will be implemented under five main components: (i) Strengthening coordination, leadership, and resource tracking at national and sub-national levels; (ii) Timely detection and notification to alert and suspected cases in the community; (iii) Effective Management of suspected and confirmed Sudan EVD cases in Uganda; (iv) Strengthening laboratory diagnosis for Sudan Ebola virus; (v) Emergency EVD logistics and supplies deployed timely.

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.
