The Contingency Fund for Emergencies (CFE) has been a gamechanger for WHO. It allows WHO to respond rapidly to disease outbreaks and health emergencies - often in 24 hours or less. This saves lives and helps prevent unnecessary suffering. Furthermore, a quick response dramatically reduces the costs of controlling outbreaks and emergencies, as well as the wider social and economic impacts.

Some 258 million people are international migrants, 40 million are internally displaced and 24 million are refugees or asylum seekers.

La riposte à la flambée de maladie à virus Ebola (MVE) dans le nord-est de la République démocratique du Congo demeure une entreprise complexe. En utilisant des mesures de santé publique qui ont fait leurs preuves (recherche des contacts, mobilisation des communautés) ainsi que les nouveaux outils à disposition (vaccin et produits thérapeutiques), l’OMS reste persuadée que la flambée pourra être maîtrisée et close.
