Analysis: Donors threaten to withhold Gaza aid
7 October 2014 (IRIN ), Days ahead of a key meeting in Cairo on rebuilding Gaza in the wake of last summer’s bombardment by Israel, the prospect of forking out more millions has left international donors with a frustrating sense of déjà vu: they were in the same position in 2009 and 2012. This time, there’s a real risk their funding will be meager in the absence of real commitments from both Israel and the main Palestinian factions.

Ebola and Sierra Leone – money is the easy bit
2 October 2014 (IRIN ), In the incongruously sumptuous setting of London's historic Lancaster House, representatives of governments and humanitarian organizations listened in silence as a British nurse, Will Pooley, recently recovered from Ebola, evoked the squalor of the Ebola wards in Kenema where he had worked, and told of the painful deaths of two Sierra Leonean children he had befriended, a young brother and sister.

Ebola and "the perfect storm"
24 September 2014 (IRIN ), The new figures from the World Health Organization's (WHO) Ebola Response Team are sobering. If cases in the three worst affected countries continue to rise at the present rate, by the beginning of November more than 20,000 people in West Africa will have been infected. And despite earlier suggestions that this might be a less deadly strain of the Ebola virus, allowing half its victims to recover, the new figures show a much higher fatality rate, in the region of 70 percent.
