DR Congo – Measles Outbreak

Vooruitgang: Finalisation
Budget: € 40000
Looptijd: 2019-11-18 - 2020-03-18


The DRC’s Ministry of Health declared a measles outbreak in the country on 10 June 2019, presenting it as the deadliest outbreak in the country since the 2010-2011 outbreak which caused at least 210 deaths according to Médecins Sans Frontières. A such, this response is being proposed due to insufficient capacities on the ground, as government and other partners are now overwhelmed with the extension of the epidemic to all provinces of the country, to support immunization campaigns which have been moved forward to November and December 2019 due to the emergency situation. Indeed, between January and August 2019, measles infected more than 145,000 people and killed 2,758 people; more deaths in seven months than the EVD in one year as reported by the Ministry of Health.
