CDC Update: Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo

Monday, July 22, 2019
1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EDT



Please join CUGH for a special webinar to discuss the ongoing Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). This outbreak is the largest to occur in DRC and is now the second largest Ebola outbreak in the history of the disease. Only the 2014–2016 outbreak in West Africa was larger. The outbreak is occurring in a highly insecure environment, which complicates public health response activities and increases the risk of disease spread.

This webinar will outline Ebola Virus Disease, the current situation on the ground, and US government and international response efforts – including key public health approaches to disease control.

Despite overwhelming evidence to the life-saving properties of vaccines there has been an increase in vaccine hesitancy in many parts of the world. This has resulted in a deadly resurgence of preventable infectious diseases that is claiming an increasing number of children’s lives.

Join CUGH on Tuesday, July 16 at 3pm ET for a webinar by two global leaders in the field of vaccines and vaccine hesitancy to learn about this challenge and what we can do to enable children to access the vaccines they need to protect them from an array of preventable and potentially lethal diseases.
