Crucial Course Corrections for the Ebola Response in Beni, DRC (3 Oct 2018)

Oxfam, (2018)


The DRC government, the UN, national and international NGOs, health workers, local leaders and community members have prevented Ebola getting out of control in Beni, North Kivu, despite the complex context. However, major challenges remain. In the last week of September, almost all response activities were stopped after an armed group attacked Beni, and civil society called for a general strike or ‘ville mort’ in the town. The virus continues to emerge in new areas, including insecure ones, and amongst people who were not previously known to have been in contact with victims. So-called “community resistance” is cited as a daily challenge. Looking ahead to the next phase of the response, now is a critical moment to recalibrate and put more emphasis on building trust and engagement with communities, alongside the essential medical response.

Uganda: Ebola Preparedness Emergency Plan of Action (EPoA) - DREF Operation n° MDRUG041

International Federation of Red Cross And Red Crescent Societies, (2018)


Following the declaration of the 9th Ebola Disease Outbreak (EVD) on 8 May 2018 by the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) Ministry of Health, the WHO has raised the alert for neighbouring countries of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) which share extensive borders, hosting DRC refugees and are used as corridors for DRC population movement. On 1 August 2018, just one week after the declaration of the end of the Ebola outbreak in Equator province, the 10th Ebola epidemic of the DRC was declared in the provinces of North Kivu and Ituri, which are among the most populated provinces in the DRC that also share borders with Uganda and Rwanda.

Infection Rates and Risk Factors for Infection Among Health Workers During Ebola and Marburg Virus Outbreaks: A Systematic Review

Saranya A, Selvaraj E Lee, Mason Harrell, et al., (2018)


The Journal of Infectious Diseases, jiy435, https://doi.org/10.1093/infdis/jiy435. Many outbreaks reported high proportions of infected HWs. Similar HW infection rates and exposure risk factors in both past and recent EVD and MVD outbreaks emphasize the need to improve the implementation of appropriate infection control measures consistently across all healthcare settings.

Considérations clés : la situation de la province du Nord-Kivu en RDC

Social Science in Humanitarian Action: A Communication for Development Platform, (2018)


Cette note stratégique porte spécifiquement sur le Grand Nord : soit les territoires de Beni et de Lubero au nord du Nord-Kivu constituant l’épicentre de la flambée épidémiquee. D’autres enquêtes participatives doivent être menées auprès des populations touchées, mais étant donné l’actuelle transmission du virus, la priorité a été accordée à la communication des considérations clées et des recommandations immédiates.

Key considerations: the context of North Kivu province, DRC

Social Science in Humanitarian Action: A Communication for Development Platform, (2018)


This brief focuses specifically on the Grand Nord (Great North): the Beni and Lubero territories of northern North Kivu that are the epicentre of the outbreak. Further participatory enquiry should be undertaken with the affected populations, but given ongoing transmission, conveying key considerations and immediate recommendations have been prioritised. This brief is based on a rapid review of existing published and grey literature, professional ethnographic research in DRC, personal communication with administrative and health officials and practitioners in the country, and experience of previous Ebola outbreaks.

Lutte contre l'épidémie d'Ébola

Mehmet Cangul, Carlo Sdralevich et Inderjit Sian, Eds.: IMF, (2017)


C’est en agissant prestement sur le front économique que l’on a pu surmonter cette crise sanitaire
L’Afrique de l’Ouest et la communauté internationale ont dû faire face à une crise sanitaire sans précédent lorsqu’a éclaté, en mars 2014, la plus grande épidémie de la maladie à virus Ébola jamais enregistrée. Celle-ci a fait plus de 11.000 morts et infecté plus de 28.000 personnes entre la fin 2013 et le début 2016.
L’importance des dépenses sanitaires et sociales que cette épidémie a exigées a aussi provoqué une crise économique, qui a été aggravée par l’effondrement presque concomitant des cours des produits de base. Déjà sous pression avant la survenue de l’épidémie, les systèmes sanitaires et sociaux de la Guinée, du Libéria et de la Sierra Leone — pays les plus touchés — ont été submergés.
