Since it was officially declared on August 1st 2018, The Democratic Republic of the Congo has experienced the world's second largest Ebola epidemic. There have been over 2,500 confirmed infections leading to the loss of more than 1,700 lives. Recently the situation has escalated further, on July 17th, the current Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo was deemed a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) under the International Health Regulations by the Director-General of the World Health Organization.
Both the WHO and CDC have staff working closely on this outbreak but we want to hear from people across our network. Any staff involved with this outbreak in any capacity, who would like to share their experiences?
