KFF Releases Issue Brief Examining Ebola Outbreak Amid Conflict In DRC, Including International, U.S. Response

Kaiser Family Foundation: Ebola Spreads amid Violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and U.S. Role Remains Limited
Josh Michaud, associate director of global health policy at KFF, and Jen Kates, vice president and director of global health & HIV policy at KFF, examine the international and U.S. response to the ongoing Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), now the second largest ever recorded, as authorities struggle to contain the virus’s spread amid violence in an active combat zone. The brief notes the limited U.S. role with restricted deployment of key personnel due to safety concerns (Michaud/Kates, 1/18).
