Fast and effective in the fight against Ebola

Dr Tony Byamungu, UNICEF DRC Health Manager, was one of the first to access Iboko, the most difficult location to access for the Ebola Response.

As I write this, I am inside the Iboko Health Zone, south of the Équateur Province in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Almost two months ago, the Health Minister declared an Ebola epidemic in the country. Iboko is one of the three health zones affected.

The past weeks have been particularly stressful and demanding for all of us in the UNICEF DRC team. During one of the first coordination meetings, the UNICEF Representative had clearly set the pace for us — we are at war with the disease. To contain the disease, we knew we had to be quick and efficient.

The full testimony of our colleague Tony is available here
