- The Government of Liberia (GoL) documented only one new confirmed EVD case between February 17 and 23—the lowest one-week total since June 2014.
- WHO has expressed concern that the downward trend in the number of new cases seen in January in Guinea and Sierra Leone has leveled off in recent weeks.
- Staple and cash crops are available in local markets in the EVD-affected countries; however, weak household purchasing power caused by EVD-related economic disruptions may lead to localized acute food insecurity in the coming months.
"Being LGBT in Asia” is a ground-breaking, first-of-its-kind initiative to support Asia’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. It works to bolster basic LGBT rights across the continent and in specific focus countries including China, Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand. In 2014, the Embassy of Sweden in Bangkok, through the section for Regional Development Cooperation, joined the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) as a lead funding partner, raising the profile of regional organizations and institutions in addressing LGBT rights issues. The program will be implemented through 2017.
