‘Inside the Ebola Response’: ALIMA presents at Devex event

ALIMA (The Alliance for International Medical Action) was invited to speak at a special online event, hosted by the international development news agency Devex, on June 18th, to discuss the ongoing response to the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), which has now spread into neighboring Uganda.

Along with Devex’s senior global health reporter Jenny Lei Ravelo, ALIMA’s Director General, Augustin Augier, speaks about the current situation in DRC, ALIMA’s involvement in the response, and some of the challenges faced in containing the outbreak, including the complexities of working in an active conflict zone. He also highlights some of the successes so far, new tools being used, and makes  recommendations about what more needs to be done to further improve the response.
