The UK is leading the international response to the Ebola crisis in Sierra Leone and has now committed £205 million to tackle the disease, including the delivery of 700 beds in Ebola Treatment Centres to provide treatment for individuals infected with Ebola. £50m of UK funding will support the delivery of Community Care Centres, where people who suspect they might be suffering from the disease can seek swift and accurate diagnosis, isolation if needed, and appropriate care. The UK will fund 200 of these centres as part of our broader approach to tackling the Ebola crisis.
