Int’l Confab On Ebola Recovery Priorities Begins Thursday

MONROVIA, July 8 (LINA) - The United Nations Secretary General-inspired Conference designed to focus international attention on the need for targeted investments to support Ebola recovery priorities over a 24-month period for three hard-hit West African nations, kicks-off Thursday in New York.

At the invitation of U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, the Liberian leader will join her colleagues - Guinean President, Dr. Alpha Condé and Sierra Leonean President, Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma - to attend an International Ebola Recovery Conference at the UN Headquarters in New York.

According to an Executive Mansion release, such investments will consider the broader risk landscape that includes health, governance and peace building within the three countries and the Mano River sub-region.

The Conference will also offer an opportunity to discuss detailed country-based and regional anti-Ebola strategies, and provide a platform to secure pledges of international support that can complement African Union-led efforts and help fill technical and resource gaps.

The one-day, high-level conference slated for Friday, July 10, and a technical consultation on Thursday, July 9, aims to present national Ebola recovery strategy documents for Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, and a regional Ebola recovery strategy document from the Mano River Union.

The projected outcomes include increased international support to the affected countries and region, with concrete financial commitments to support national and regional recovery strategies within a 24-month timeframe.

The Conference is being held in partnership with the African Union, African Development Bank, European Union and World Bank.

At the same time, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, at the head of a high-level Liberian delegation, has departed the country for official visits to the United States of America and Ethiopia.
