[Editorial] DR Congo: managing Ebola virus in war

The latest Ebola virus outbreak across DR Congo is testing international and local health responses under conditions of extreme stress. The country is deep in a protracted conflict, and efforts to control Ebola virus in the conflict zone are hampered by conditions of war, which have led to a fractured society, a weakened health system, and widespread poverty and hunger. Against this backdrop, WHO’s Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, last week, in his speech at a UN Security Council meeting, raised the risk assessment of regional spread of Ebola virus disease from high to very high, and highlighted concern of spread into Uganda, Rwanda, South Sudan, and Burundi.
