South Sudanese refugees in the Democratic Republic of the Congo commuting to their home country in search of food not given to them across the border do not only constitute a sad humanitarian tale. Their desperate movements also increase the risk of the much feared Ebola virus being transported to the world s youngest nation. There is no cause of alarm, though, as no case of the disease has been reported in South Sudan. We are also as prepared as we can be to handle any eventuality if it breaks out, says Dr. James Wani, Director General of the Yei River area s Ministry of Health.

Recently, several rebel militia members fighting over the northeastern corner of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) died of Ebola. Rebels dying from Ebola is a development that merits deeper examination. The fact that Ebola, which has killed more than 500 people in this outbreak, is now truly mixing with the country s violent landscape is a complicating factor, as international health care officials are developing an inoculation ring in Rwanda, Uganda and South Sudan that began in mid January. In effect, a program of spatial containment is being instituted. This Ebola outbreak is the second worst case so far. Luckily, experimental vaccination programs are working, but administering these programs in violence prone areas is difficult at best. DRC Health Minister Oly Ilunga Kalenga said that the vaccination program had been administered to 76,425 people and had prevented thousands of deaths by stopping the spread of Ebola to big cities. The vaccine is not 100 percent effective as it is still experimental. International health authorities are concerned that the disease can still spread. The DRC security situation is most problematic in the east of the country, where dozens of armed militias struggle over resources such as gold, diamonds, copper and coltan for profit and power. The area is home to the vast majority of the country s 70 armed groups, all pursuing shifting local and national agendas. Most of them are small, numbering less than 200 fighters, but the havoc they have wreaked over decades, especially in North and South Kivu, have made eastern DRC the epicenter of deadly violence and humanitarian crises. This mix makes treating Ebola problematic, as this is the first time that an Ebola outbreak is occurring in an area with daily violence. The DRC s ongoing instability caused by militia activity is creating mistrust in the population toward health workers. For international aid organizations, this is a worst case scenario, where victims carrying a deadly disease are unable to be treated because of attacks by machete carrying rebels with heavy caliber weaponry. An attack by the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) late last year killed 18 people in the town of Beni, halting local efforts to contain the spread of Ebola through this unstable area.
