    • Description:
      The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) began working in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in 2002 with an initial focus on capacity building and health system strengthening. The launch of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief in 2004 and the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative in 2005 expanded CDC’s support. CDC also works closely with the DRC to address other infectious diseases and strengthen laboratory, surveillance, and workforce capacity to respond to disease outbreaks, including Ebola. On August 1, 2018, the Ministry of Health of the DRC reported an outbreak of Ebola virus disease in North Kivu Province in the Eastern part of the country. This is the 10th Ebola outbreak in the DRC since the virus was discovered there in 1976 and it has grown to become the second largest. CS290566-Q PO DRC_Factsheet.pdf
