Ebola outbreak portal
Unfortunately, our Ebola outbreak portal is again helping practitioners, researchers, and organisations worldwide to stay informed on the current outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo
Access the Ebola Outbreak Portal Here
The current outbreak of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo is raising fears of a repeat epidemic such as was experienced in West Africa in 2014. Resultantly, the EVD Outbreak Portal website is gaining [unfortunately] both relevance and interest again. The EVD Outbreak Portal was a result of a coordinated effort between Independent Social Performance, Habitat Health Impact Consulting, and Oxfam IBIS (formerly IBIS West Africa). The Portal has remained active since it was set up in 2014. The portal continuously aggregates news articles from local, national and international news regarding Ebola and the Extractive Industries of Oil, Gas and Mining for the countries of Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea, Senegal, Nigeria, and the DRC. The Portal has never stopped collecting data since it started in 2014. It is maintained by Independent SP and will always be free and open use.
