star this property answer text <p>The Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is the second largest in history and the first in a conflict zone. The response has been hampered by numerous attacks against health workers and health facilities. The UK strongly condemns such attacks, while commending the bravery of all the health workers working tirelessly to end the outbreak. The UK is working with the UN and other donors to ensure strengthened security in Ebola affected areas that protects both communities and frontline workers, while not undermining local trust in the response.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The spread of Ebola to Goma is deeply concerning. Goma’s position on the border increases the chance of Ebola spreading to Rwanda.</p><p> </p><p>The UK is a leading donor to the Ebola response in DRC and has played a pivotal role in helping neighbouring countries like Rwanda prepare. On 15 July, DFID announced that the UK would provide up to a further £50 million to the response to December 2019. UK Aid is supporting a range of activities, including the construction of screening facilities at border crossings and the vaccination of health workers in DRC and the region.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is the second largest in history and the first in a conflict zone. The UK has been a major supporter of the response since the start, providing funding, technical expertise, and political support.</p><p> </p><p>The response has been hampered by repeated attacks against health workers and health facilities. Improving community trust and ownership are essential to getting the outbreak under control. UK funding supports community engagement and working with local leaders and religious groups to foster trust and ownership. It supports efforts to understand community concerns better and feed this understanding back into the response. Examples include employing people who have recovered from Ebola to talk to communities about the health care they received as a way to build community trust in health workers.</p><p> </p><p>The UK and other donors are also supporting the UN to strengthen security in Ebola affected areas to protect both communities and response workers.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK has been one of the major supporters of the response to the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) since it began in August 2018. This has included providing significant funding and technical expertise. Two days before the declaration of a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC), on 15 July, DFID announced additional financial and technical support of up to £50 million – recognising the seriousness of the situation in DRC and the high risk of regional spread.</p><p> </p><p>Following the PHEIC declaration, the UK has echoed the WHO Director-General, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, in encouraging countries, companies and individuals to avoid measures that could undermine the response and further fuel insecurity, notably the closure of borders.</p> more like this
