Ebola Outbreak West Africa: National Response Programme Guinea (October 2014 – September 2015)
Jan 2015

STRATEGIC RESPONSE

FAO’s main objective is to mitigate the negative impacts of EVD on food security and livelihoods in Guinea, and to contribute to lifesaving activities by stopping the spread of the disease to ensure a prompt return to agricultural production and awareness raising and income-generating activities.

FAO’s response in Guinea builds on ongoing social mobilization campaigns, rapid assessments and value chain evaluations that aim to improve understanding of issues related to food safety and public health. Various stakeholders will be involved in the programme, which will be implemented in close partnership with the Ministry of Agriculture.

This National Response Programme is in line with FAO’s overall response strategy and is part of the Response Programme to the EVD outbreak in West Africa.

FAO is appealing for a total of USD 14.18 million to assist nearly 75 000 farming households most affected by the outbreak in Guinea.
