World Malaria Day 2018 in DRC

Democratic Republic of Congo

We respond to emergencies and assist people fleeing violence and armed conflict. In 2018, we responded to two Ebola outbreaks, in Equateur and North Kivu provinces respectively.

We run some of our largest programmes in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), working in 17 of 26 provinces and responding to diseases outbreaks, conflict and displacement, and health problems such as HIV/AIDs.

The population has little access to healthcare, and outbreaks are frequent due to poor surveillance and infrastructure. Violence has led to crises in the Kivus, Tanganyika and Kasai regions and forced millions to flee. Three of our staff, abducted in North Kivu in 2013, are still missing.
