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.

The present intervention concerns the Emergency Assistance to Support the National Ebola Viral Disease Preparedness and Response Plan. It aims to contribute to the reduction of EVD related morbidity and mortality in the affected area and prevent transmission to new areas in the country. The Bank will contribute USD 1million (One million United Sates Dollars) in response to the request of the Government of Uganda to provide critical emergency support to EVD response activities. The response will be implemented by the WHO underoverall leadership of the Ministry of Health and district local governments, with the support of other partners. The operation will be implemented in 10 high-risk districts along the border with DRC that experience a lot of people movements from DRC and also in the central vulnerable districts of Kampala and Wakiso. It comprises three components, namely: (i) management of suspected and confirmed EVD cases in Uganda (ii) detection and response to EVD alerts strengthened and (iii) EVD Readiness at National and in High Risk Districts strengthened.

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

The beneficiaries of the operation are the vulnerable populations in the affected districts.

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.

The Independent Review Mechanism (IRM), which is administered by the Compliance Review and Mediation Unit (CRMU), is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an African Development Bank (AfDB)-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may assist you by either seeking to address your problems by facilitating a dispute resolution dialogue between you and those implementing the project and/or investigating whether the AfDB complied with its policies to prevent environmental and social harms. You can submit a complaint electronically by emailing,,, and/or You can learn more about the IRM and how to file a complaint at
