The Contingency Fund for Emergencies (CFE) enables WHO to quickly respond to disease outbreaks and humanitarian crises with health consequences before other donor funding is mobilized. This can stop a health emergency from spiralling out of control, saving resources and lives. So far the CFE has enabled WHO to get quick starts on around 60 disease outbreaks, humanitarian crises and natural disasters, allocating more than US$ 46 million. In 2017, the CFE provided nearly US$ 20 million for operations in 23 countries, with most allocations released within 24 hours.
