49 The West African region: In 2015, under the low scenario, GDP growth will be 0.5 percentage points lower. The loss of GDP for the whole region will be US$3.6 billion on average per year (i.e. 1.2% of the average GDP of the region). In impact of the EVD will reduce GDP per capita growth, by 0.8 percentage points on average between 2014 and 2017. Hence, the region as a whole will lose about US$18 per capita per year. In the high scenario, GDP growth decreases by 0.5 percentage point on average between 2014 and 2017, which represents a loss of GDP of around US$4.9 billion per year (see table 12 and figure 19).

51 4. The socio-economic impact of the Ebola virus disease The socio-economic impact focuses on three key issues: the anthropological dimension of the EVD using a case study from Guinea, its implication on food security, and poverty impacts. The econometric analysis was used to establish the food security and poverty impacts. 29 The UNDP national studies in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone provided additional primary sources of information and complemented the anthropological survey from Guinea and other secondary sources of information. 4.1. The anthropological dimension An anthropological survey was undertaken to capture people’s practical experiences of the socio-economic impact of the EVD in Guinea.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
