WHO Response


66顺彩票appThe public health response pillar (Pillar 1) of the fourth Strategic Response Plan (SRP-4) for the Ebola virus disease outbreak in the provinces of North Kivu and Ituri seeks to take into account the new strategy to scale-up the response in order to interrupt the epidemic. It focuses on the following:

  1. Detection and rapid isolation of cases;
  2. Intensification of rapid multidisciplinary public health actions around any confirmed case;
  3. Strengthening community engagement;
  4. Strengthening the health system and effective coordination of the activities of local and international partners;
  5. Synergies between public health activities and those of the security, humanitarian, financial and operational readiness sectors, and operational readiness of neighbouring countries, to create an enabling environment for the response.
