    Democratic Republic of the Congo crisis

    The Strategic Response Plan for the Ebola virus disease outbreak was launched in Kinshasa

    13 February 2019 -- The Ministry of Health of the Democratic Republic of Congo launched officially the Strategic Response Plan (Phase 3) against the Ebola Virus Disease Epidemic in the North Kivu Provinces and Ituri for the next 6 months. International Donors, United Nations Agencies and Non-Governmental Organizations gathered in Kinshasa together with the Minister of Health to mobilize funds. The aim is to stop the transmission and the spread of the disease in other provinces in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as well a spread to the neighboring countries.

    Ebola virus disease – Democratic Republic of the Congo

    31 January 2019 -- The Ministry of Health (MoH), WHO and partners continue to respond to an outbreak of Ebola virus disease (EVD), despite persistent challenges around security and community mistrust impacting response measures. Relatively high numbers of cases were reported in recent weeks (Figure 1), mostly driven by the outbreak in Katwa Health Zone; the current focus of large scale response activities. Smaller clusters continue to be reported beyond Katwa Health Zone, including from Beni and Oicha; however, teams have quickly and systematically responded to these clusters to prevent onward transmission and guard against further geographical expansion of the outbreak. Teams are also working actively to strengthen community trust and participation in all affected areas.

    Ebola virus disease – Democratic Republic of the Congo

    10 January 2018 -- WHO and partners continue to respond to the ongoing Ebola virus disease (EVD) outbreak in one of the most complex settings possible. A decline in case incidence has been seen in Beni, the former epicentre. This is a strong positive indication of how effective the response can be despite multiple challenges. However, in Beni and elsewhere, trends must be interpreted cautiously, as delayed detection of cases is expected following recent temporary disruption in response activities due to insecurity. Nevertheless, WHO and partners remain committed, under the government’s leadership and through collaboration across agencies, to addressing challenges and ending the outbreak.

    Statement on disruptions to the Ebola response in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

    28 December 2018 -- WHO and partners are continuing to respond to the Ebola outbreak in North Kivu and Ituri provinces in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, despite a deterioration of the security situation since yesterday morning.
    Yesterday our teams in Beni were unable to carry out critical field work, including vaccinations, contact tracing, and following up on alerts of potential new cases. Protests at government buildings in Beni spilled over to an Ebola transit centre, frightening people waiting for Ebola test results and the staff who were caring for them. Staff at the centre temporarily withdrew and most suspected cases were transferred to a nearby treatment centre.

    December 2018 -- Twice a week, Mama Mwatatu rises early and makes a two-hour trek from her home in Beni’s Cité Belge neighbourhood in North Kivu, the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the local radio station.

Mama Mwatatu teamed up with WHO’s community engagement team talking about Ebola in her broadcasts, both reassuring and educating her listeners.

    Ebola virus disease – Democratic Republic of the Congo

    20 December 2018 -- Responding to the Ebola virus disease (EVD) outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo continues to be a complex challenge. Pockets of community reluctance and the conflict setting continue to obstruct activities in some affected areas. Additional challenges may also be anticipated during the ongoing election period, which may lead to heightened political tension, a deterioration of the overall security situation and violent civil unrest; presenting an indirect threat to the Ebola response operations.
