The Government is committed to consideration of how best to recognise humanitarian service in a range of ways, including existing honours and medals and as part of wider
developments in medallic recognition. Examples include the announcement in 2015 of the Ebola Medal, which recognised people from both military and civilian organisations for
their brave service to assist communities in West Africa. This new medal was announced alongside existing honours in the Orders of St. Michael and St. George and the Order of
the British Empire for people whose contribution to tackling the crisis was part of well-established outstanding service.
Recommendations for new medals are made to HM The Queen by the Committee on the Grant of Honours, Decorations and Medals.
