The generosity of our resource partners makes the CFE a fast and flexible financing instrument that gives WHO the funding it needs to kick start emergency response operations.
The World Health Assembly, WHO’s governing body, set a US$ 100 million funding target when it established the CFE in 2015 to ensure the impact and effectiveness of the CFE. Currently, the fund has a US$ 55.5 million funding gap which WHO is seeking to address through an enhanced resource mobilization strategy.
Since the CFE’s launch in 2015, the fund has made 46 emergency allocations for a total of US$ 36 million to 31 countries/territories, 2 regional and 1 global response. Most CFE allocations are released within 24 hours, responding to disease outbreaks, natural disaster and complex humanitarian crises.
