NEW Negotiation of humanitarian access in North Kivu: the perception of armed non-State actors, communities and humanitarians

Geneva Call, (2019)


In response to the shrinking humanitarian space in North Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), this report seeks to shed light on the humanitarian access negotiation practices of NGOs operating in the area. It explores the way that local communities and armed non-State actors (ANSAs) perceive the different humanitarian stakeholders active in the region and how NGOs go about negotiating access. Based on this, the report provides recommendations for improving humanitarian access in North Kivu, and thus responding to the needs of the civilian population

Cependant depuis le début du mois de décembre, une augmentation importante de l’incidence des nouveaux cas est observée particulièrement le long du corridor vers le grand centre urbain de Butembo (zones de santé de Butembo et Katwa) et au-delà dans la zone de santé de Kayna située à environ 150 km de Goma. Par ailleurs, des foyers actifs ont émergé vers le nord notamment dans les zones de santé de Komanda et Oicha.

Ebola Virus Disease: Democratic Republic of the Congo - External Situation Report 33 19 March 2019

World Health Organization WHO, (2019)


The Ebola virus disease (EVD) outbreak in the North Kivu and Ituri provinces has recently shown an increase in the number of cases reported by week, after many weeks of overall decline. This rise is not unexpected and likely due, in part, to the recently increased security challenges, including direct attacks on treatment centres, and pockets of community mistrust, which slowed some response activities in affected areas for a few days. While Katwa and Butembo remain major hotspots, clusters of cases with onward transmission have been reported in other health zones such as Mandima, Masereka and Vuhovi, which is concerning. Response teams are working actively in these areas to limit local transmission. During the last 21 days (25 February – 17 March 2019), no new cases have been detected in nine of the 20 health zones that have been affected during the outbreak. Moreover, the outbreak is currently limited to 34 health areas within 11 health zones; 19% of the 128 health areas affected to date. During this period, a total of 86 confirmed cases were reported from Katwa (35), Butembo (13), Mandima (12), Masereka (8), Vuhovi (6), Kalunguta (5), Kyondo (2), Lubero (2), Kyaina (1), Mabalako (1) and Biena (1).
