The Ebola virus disease (EVD) outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo is occurring in an unforgiving context. Non-engagement from communities and conflict continue to hamper response activities in some affected areas. Moreover, poor infection prevention and control (IPC) practices across numerous private and public health centers remain a major source of amplification of the outbreak and risk to health and other frontline workers.

Le Fonds central d’intervention d’urgence des Nations Unies (CERF) va allouer 10 millions de dollars pour appuyer la riposte régionale à Ebola en Afrique centrale.
L’annonce a été faite mercredi par Mark Lowcock, le Secrétaire général adjoint aux affaires humanitaires et Coordonnateur des secours d'urgence, qui a autorité sur le CERF.

The Ministry of Health (MoH), WHO and partners continue to respond to the Ebola virus disease (EVD) outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. By using proven public health measures as well as new tools at hand (immunization and therapeutics), WHO remains confident the outbreak can be contained and brought to an end, despite multifaceted challenges.
Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Mark Lowcock today announced a US$10 million regional contribution from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) towards mitigating the possible impact of the current Ebola outbreak should it spread to countries neighbouring the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
The month of October saw the highest number of Start Fund awarded responses in one single month. From awarding responses to cross-border displacement in Ecuador and Peru to anticipating a volcanic eruption in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) it was the highest alerting and activated month in the history of the Start Fund, where 13 alerts from 15 were activated. In comparison, the previous highest alerting month which was August 2016 had 11 alerts, of which 7 were activated.
The 2019-2020 Regional Refugee Response Plan (RRRP) for the Democratic Republic of the Congo presents the biannual inter-agency response to the renewed and heightened humanitarian challenge posed by the mounting number of Congolese refugees in the countries neighbouring the DRC, including existing refugee populations and new arrivals, and host communities.
La Représentante spéciale du Secrétaire général est préoccupée par la succession d’incidents graves qui entravent le bon déroulement de la campagne électorale en République démocratique du Congo. Elle dénonce le fait que certains candidats de l’opposition rencontrent de nombreux obstacles pour tenir des réunions publiques dans certaines villes du pays, comme cela a été constaté ces derniers jours à Kindu et à Lubumbashi et, aujourd’hui, à Kalemie.
