International Medical Corps

Democratic Republic of the Congo is experiencing two separate outbreaks of Ebola Virus Disease, one in the northwestern province of Equateur, the second in North Kivu, hundreds of miles to the east. International Medical Corps has responded to both of these outbreaks and in September 2018 opened a new 20-bed Ebola Treatment Center (ETC) in Makeke, Ituri Province, which borders North Kivu. The ETC is co-managed by the Ministry of Health. Additionally, International Medical Corps has completed construction of several Ebola screening and referral units (SRU) that screen thousands of people each month for evidence of the Ebola virus.
