DR Congo – Ebola Virus Disease Outbreak

Vooruitgang: Implementation
Budget: € 500000
Looptijd: 2019-07-31 - 2020-07-29


Given the persistence of the disease, it is crucial to maintain the efforts made so far and to increase efforts to stop
the spread of this outbreak in other areas not yet affected by the epidemic. Aligned with the revised SRP4, the
operational timeframe of the OIA extends to 21 February 2020 and focuses on community ownership of response
activities. The Ebola response in DR Congoi is currently being driven by an ongoing expansion within ‘hot spot’ health areas in key health zones through ‘super spreading’ cells by a highly mobile population and intra-familial infections. The response has been complicated by violence and insecurity, making it difficult to sustain downward trends in the outbreak. While not classified as a public health emergency of international concern, the complex security situation—including mistrust of some of the population of health authorities and humanitarian organizations—the risk of spread to neighbouring countries and new health zones/provinces in DRC remains very high. The WHO has called for intensified epidemic response activities in DR Congo and in neighbouring countries to avoid worsening conditions and further spread of the virus. DR Congo
