Ebola in DRC: On my way

Australian doctor Saschveen recently returned from the Democratic Republic of Congo, where Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is fighting an Ebola epidemic – now the second-largest outbreak of the disease in history. In this first blog, she shares her thoughts on the journey to the frontline.

Ebola: "I was terrified of my first time in the high-risk zone. Now I train others."

Three years after the end of the major Ebola epidemic in West Africa, an outbreak of the deadly disease was declared on 1 August 2018 in the North Kivu province of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). In this new fight against Ebola, MSF relies on veteran staff to share their knowledge. One of them is Alpha Diallo, a water and sanitation expert from Guinea.
