Tracking Tedros in the DRC

The current Ebola outbreak in the DRC has killed over 2,000 people—but the pathogen is far from the only problem, Nature’s Amy Maxmen reports.
 
Years of relentless violence in the region has killed thousands—and the death toll now includes health workers, forcing many response teams to retreat. Meanwhile, the disproportionate focus on Ebola has left many wondering why more isn’t being done to address more entrenched problems, as noted in this piece by NPR Goats and Soda.
 
WHO provides the most on-the-ground support of any organization, but has also faced criticism for its handling of the response, from community operations to hesitating to declare an international emergency.

Maxmen joined WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on the front lines of this deeply complex crisis.
