star this property answer text <p>The Multilateral Debt Relief Initiative (MDRI) provides full relief on eligible debt owed by countries which have reached Completion Point of the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries Initiative, to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the International Development Association (IDA) of the World Bank, and the African Development Fund (AfDF) of the African Development Bank. The UK contributed £107 million to the MDRI in 2017 and this is all official development assistance (ODA).</p><p> </p><p>When necessary, the UK also provides relief on loans made bilaterally by the Export Credit Guarantee Department (ECGD) to developing countries, through the coordinated process of the Paris Club of creditors. In 2017 the UK provided £3 million of ODA as such debt relief on ECGD loans.</p><p> </p><p>Therefore in 2017 the total UK debt relief, through the MDRI and bilaterally, represented 0.78% of total UK ODA in 2017.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is the second largest in history and the first in a conflict zone. The UK has been a major supporter of the response since the start, providing funding, technical expertise, and political support.</p><p> </p><p>The response has been hampered by repeated attacks against health workers and health facilities. Improving community trust and ownership are essential to getting the outbreak under control. UK funding supports community engagement and working with local leaders and religious groups to foster trust and ownership. It supports efforts to understand community concerns better and feed this understanding back into the response. Examples include employing people who have recovered from Ebola to talk to communities about the health care they received as a way to build community trust in health workers.</p><p> </p><p>The UK and other donors are also supporting the UN to strengthen security in Ebola affected areas to protect both communities and response workers.</p>
