The Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo has reached Uganda. Amid numerous challenges and frustrations, U.N. agencies and NGOs are responding in DRC — and beyond its borders — to contain the latest outbreak. The World Health Organization has again decided against declaring a global health emergency, but this is being challenged by others in the global health community.

Devex Global health journalist Jenny Lei Ravelo and Director-General of the Alliance for International Medical Action Augustin Augier gave exclusive insights into the response on the ground — and dove deeper into challenges of funding, political instability and security concerns, community engagement, and coordination among responders in the field.
