700K People Vaccinated Against Yellow Fever in DRC
Description: Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) vaccinated 710,000 people against yellow fever in 11 days in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The organizations is saying "Thank you" to all the donors and supporters of the campaign who made this possible. A vaccination campaign on this scale comes with numerous logistical challenges, such as managing the movements of 65 vehicles in densely populated neighborhoods and ensuring that the cold chain remains effective in keeping the vaccines at the proper temperature. Every day, the teams needed 4,000 ice packs and coolers in different locations.Read more about the campaign here: Learn more about MSF in this video:

HOW TO | Vaccinate 710,000 people in 10 days
Description: Organizing a successful mass vaccination takes much more than just providing a vaccine to those in need. In the contexts where MSF traditionally works, infrastructures are often weak, especially when it comes to communication. In these instances, it's a real challenge to make people aware of the service we provide. In August 2016, MSF participated to one of the largest ever yellow fever vaccination campaigns to take place in Africa: over 10 million people were vaccinated in the Democratic Republic of Congo within just 10 days. MSF managed the campaign in three neighborhoods of the sprawling megalopolis of Kinshasa, reaching 710.000 people vaccinated against yellow fever – an excellent vaccination cover of 95% of the population in those areas. This required the dedication of the health promotion team, mostly national Congolese staff, who tirelessly crisscrossed the dense city to convince people to get their shots.

How To Fight Yellow Fever
Description: Following the outbreak of yellow fever in Angola in December and the subsequent confirmation of dozens of cases in the DRC, MSF teams were deployed in both countries to help contain the spread of the disease. MSF has launched vector control measures in Kinshasa and Kongo Central. These activities are intended to combat the Aedes aegypti mosquito, the carriers of yellow fever. Homes are being sprayed or fumigated to kill adult mosquitoes and destroy breeding sites such as refuse or items containing stagnant water, where the mosquito lays its eggs.

HIV/AIDS | Begging For Pills: fighting for access to medicine in Kinshasa, DRC
Description: Caludine Motossia lives in Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo, or DRC for short. Along with around 450,000 other people in DRC she has HIV. To stay healthy, people with HIV need to take antiretroviral (ARV's) drugs every day for the rest of their lives. In theory, this treatment is free for everyone, everywhere – but the reality of corruption in DRC means that there are all kinds of hidden costs. As a result, many people struggle to stay on treatment – despite knowing that the price of stopping treatment is death. Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare.
