Public Health Emergency
Right now, the Ebola epidemic that has been raging in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is dangerously close to spreading out of control.
Over 2,000 people have been killed in DRC. More than 500 of these were children, and hundreds more children are infected.
The deadly disease is rapidly spreading, with recent cases in Uganda too. The outbreak is far from under control, there is real risk it could continue for at least another year - and it's children that are hardest hit.
Misinformation is one of the main barriers to curbing the spread of Ebola, but our teams are working within communities, helping children and their families understand how to protect themselves and others.
