Title

Ebola in Democratic Republic of the Congo: CDC Webinar

Description

Overview

The Ebola outbreak in Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), a large country in Central Africa with more than 85 million people, continues to grow and threaten other countries. This outbreak is the largest to occur in DRC and is now the second largest Ebola outbreak in the history of the disease. Only the 2014–2016 outbreak in West Africa was larger. The outbreak is occurring in a highly insecure environment, which complicates public health response activities and increases the risk of disease spread. This special webinar from CDC EPIC and CDC’s National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases will discuss the current situation and how organizations sending US-based workers to areas with Ebola can ensure the health and safety of their workers before, during, and after deployment.
