WHO to probe 'sexual exploitation' by aid workers in DR Congo

"Take you back to those allegations. We were talking about earlier in the programme of sexual abuse by eight workers in the Democratic Republic of Congo Investigation by the new humanitarian news agency on the Thompson Reuters Foundation has collected interviews for more than 50 women. Who say they had to have sex to get work with relief agencies that during the recent Ebola outbreak we had earlier from two women who said it was doctors from the W Wait Show World Health Organization who demanded Six from them. That organization has responded, saying it is outraged by the allegations in the report, and we'll investigate. Let's talk to our correspondent in Geneva, which is where the W H O has its headquarters. Emergent folks. So imagine shocking. We heard the testimony of these women earlier. What is Thie is saying Well, so moved very, very quickly to respond to this investigative report and basically had to because you know the issue off sexual misconduct, sexual exploitation among the humanitarian community. We know Was in the headlines and we thought was being very seriously addressed. Years ago. Now we have allegations again. And so the W H o respondents said We are outraged. We will have an immediate investigation threatening immediate dismissal for anyone. Proven to be involved and saying that the betrayal of people in the communities we serve is reprehensible. We do not tolerate such behavior. So they moved quickly. Nevertheless, I think it's obviously in the middle of a pandemic where the W H O is in the headlines all the time. It is absolutely not the kind of news story the W H would like to be dealing with right now.

"dr congo" Discussed on UN News

"This is an academy with US following a five day visit to Democratic Republic of the Congo or DRC where instability intercommunal violence and disease Ez continues to take a heavy toll. The human rights situation there is showing signs of improvement. Said High Commissioner Michelle Ashley. The human rights chief visited visited the Eastern Province of Italy and medley. There's from the hammer and lender communities. We have suffered atrocities which according to a recent report from her office may constitute potential crimes against humanity at the end of revisit this week. The High Commissioner spoke exclusively to raid your copy the Francophone radio station station run by the UN mission in the country MANISCO. Speaking to your room mate specially started by giving an overview of the current state of human rights into DRC. We've voiced his questions into English. I will tell you. There has been a decrease of three percent. In the number of documented documented human rights violations this has been limited the number Gravity and consequences for the population remains warring though I am particular particular concern that in fact that state agents remain responsible for the majority fifty four percent over the documenting violations against the across the country. They have done less violation but still remain the biggest responsible the FA RDC in particular particular remained responsible for the largest Numbers is supposed to twenty eight percent of documented. We're talking about documented violation. We're talking about allocate. Bailey shows that have been presented by people and the had been verified which must trace that beyond limitations in their ability eighty to protect civilians. They play an active role as perpetrators decisive action. Then on the government to stop is needed to stop all by elections by the security agencies and our forces is needed but on the other hand we see an increase of activities by armed on group they have increased by forty percent. Continue to have a devastating impact on civilians so he has increased weight. In general montains the proportion on state actors but We have increased activities by armed groups so the other thing that is concerning is the increase of reported the cases of sexual violence but we have to also acknowledged progress in some areas and it has been a significant decrease minus twenty six percent percent almost a third less in the number of violation of fundamental freedoms such as you know the opening of Democratic Space Freedom of speech is the assembly and well the release of political prisoners. So I think this is a positive thing that really acknowledge however. I think it's always needed to continue making all efforts so The there's nobody relational for political a million and political rights including the should be no attacks against human rights defenders and other civil society actors and of course demonstrations should continue to be free and have hello Repression on ten January. The United Nations joined Human Rights Office published a report which states at least seven hundred. One people were killed in communal community conflicts into drew territory in Italy between September. Twenty seventeen in September two thousand nineteen according to these documents. The vast majority thirty of the victims of the attacks appear to have been targeted because of their membership of the him a community. The report also indicates that he attacks could be genocide or or crimes against humanity in his report has been contested by the Lendu community which considers it be as in full of errors. You met this community in Boone. What was the response you gave them well? First of all the reason that I went to Italy is because the majority of people will Al- always to north keep all South Kivu. We have just this report that show us that there will be problems in Italy and individual territory. The second thing that I explained to them is that the findings of the report are based on a thorough objective impartial investigation conducted by the UN. Join Human the office using the standard methodology of my office. We use the same little dollies you all over the world. I told them that all violations are abusive by all parties have been investigated the with the same level of care on thoughtfulness the figures of the report represent all the incidents against that could be verified according to the OT charming dot org and standard of proof. I pointed out that the report also also provides figures of land victims of attacks perpetrators by the Hema and documents human rights violations abuses committed against the the Lendu undo by the army and police forces. And not only figures of Hemmeh victims and finally I also noted that we will continue to the money towards the situation so I invited him to share any information about human rights abuses and violations that were not included in the report for for us so he can be verified several Congolese personalities and organizations have asked I see seat to consider the crimes and other abuses committed by national and foreign armed groups ups particularly in the East. What is your opinion? Well we think that justice substantial element of the pathway to peace peace without justice spur difficult difficult to be sustainable. We have seen it in many parts of the world. There must be accountability for crimes. Committed and justice must be seen to be done done by population have been victims of crimes and serious human rights violations. The Primary Mission of the icy sea is. It's indeed to help Putin and to impunity for the perpetrators of the most serious crimes and thus contribute to the prevention of such crimes important to note however that is not a soup sitted for national courts. It is a duty of every state to investigate. And I would say prosecute those responsible for international crimes so the icy can only intervene where when state is unable or unwilling adding to do so therefore the primary responsibility for trying perpetrators of the most serious crimes in the including those committed in the East lies within the Congolese authorities for the last ten years. We have seen progress in the capacity of the national judicial authorities in particular particular military justice to investigate and prosecute cases of grave human rights violations in particular cases that amount to crimes against humanity ace or war crimes so there has been important convictions both of senior military commanders and our group commander so I think the important talking now is to encourage the government and in particular the Minister of Justice to continue improving the system improving the capacities the resources so that requires to fight impunity effectively. So I I I will always also like to underline our commitment to continue providing providing technical assistant assistance and other kind of support Schori. Human Rights Awesome in prison conditions in. DRC They are deplorable ruble. Several deaths of prisoners have been recorded. What are your General Recommendations to Congolese authorities to improve these human rights sector? Well the first thing thing is really really concerned to hear about the conditions on prisons. The high number of faith linked to poor conditions. Poor Poor poor foot Lack of food security and of course Seven South Stander Health Care Sanitation Asian food that cycle and many many many prisoners in small prison. So I've been speaking with the government and with the Minister of Justice. Who's aware aware of this? And he's GonNa go visit different places to see the conditions and to see what can be done because you know of course. New prisons needs to be built. But but that's not something you can do from one to another so where we have been discussing is that they are going to go to the prices. And they're going to analyze the prisoners cases because because many of them are for a long time because the justice system have not been able to trial them yet. The other situation are people who the things they committed that they they did it. Maybe not that bad that they can to remain in jail that they could have sort of prevention provincial provincial and measures that can be home but respond to the police. I mean there are different ways of dealing this while A lot of other prisoners can be built so what we have been toiling then is that they have to see every case by case and see what the abilities are so but the important thing is that we have discuss this with the government. They are aware of this and they have told me that they are going to take additional measures to try to address the problem..

Comprehensive response needed to protect civilians in eastern DR Congo

"Following a rising attacks on civilians allegedly committed by the Allied Democratic Forces or ATF armed I group into eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo or DRC coupled with attacks against Ebola workers and independent assessment of the UN peacekeeping response by the MONUC mission was established last December the independent assessment found that in the months of November and December alone. More than two hundred sixty civilians. Mainly women and children were killed by presumed ADF combatants in brutal attacks mostly at night it also conclude that protecting acting civilians in Beni territory requires a comprehensive UN response Lieutenant. General cuddles Albert Shan't crews will lead the assessment team gene was at U N headquarters in New York on Monday to brief the Security Council in told you and uses Monica Rayleigh. That's armed groups. Main agenda is criminal is not political. We we had to talk to the Security Council to explain the main conclusions have reports and concluded is on the Lee structure that we need to change to in order to have more operational activities in the mission mainly connected connected to the intelligence system and the professional control in the idea of banning in the east of phone. What do you have? Groups like. Eighty F- other armed groups which are the main challenges. And how do you suggest to tackle them. And these groups have in that region they are armed groups but they are as well. I kind of organized crime because the control many illegal business and across the borders with the neighbor neighboring countries and It's very difficult to have some operations against them because they don't all have political agenda they have a Criminal behavior is going to do something. Based on your report I think so because is the chief of GPO hero commended. The the United Nations to prepare one action plan in order to establish the practical measures to implement the recommendations. We haven't report and last question you were therefore for a while Now we have a new General taking over also Brazilian. Would you recommend something to him in this next month. In order to help to tackle the insecurity We they had A coincidence because Genero is here during this week we had to pursue to talk but not there to make recommendation because general exit officer Brazil selected one of the best one and And then I think he will be successful successful in the mission and this also he was also trained by you in the past. He was a student in the preparatory school. And I was a captain them and then a because I'm eleven years older than the general and then he's a new generation from ski officer and fantastic generation. We have in Brazil.

Valter Longo, PhD - Nutrition, Fasting Mimicking Diets, Regeneration and Longevity

"Dr Vaulter Longo originally planned to be a rock musician. But luckily for us he became an international rockstar doctor. In the field of longevity evident nutrition Volker is a professor and director of Gerontology Biological Sciences at the longevity institute at the University of Southern California and he's also the director of longevity and cancer programs at the Institute of Molecular Oncology in Milan. Italy a little over a year ago Time magazine. Gene named DR Congo one of the fifty most influential people in healthcare for his work on forty two international clinical studies and groundbreaking research on the fasting mimicking diets. Away to read your body of well. A mutated cells while rejuvenating are healthy ones. He's the creator creator of the five day fasting mimicking Diet and the author of the international bestselling book the longevity. I I was nineteen. I think when I started working on aging and At the time it was a music student in Texas University of North Texas. FAMOUS JESSICA CESCO. Obviously it was in my head all along because I did not think about what I had to do. I say I have to study aging and I always thought what an incredible challenge bald scientifically but also taught. Why is every doctor working? and He seems to me and like that's where the problem is So yeah so I. I have to say beside the years very early years. I I've always worked on this that's that's all I've ever then. Because I had read about you that you had initially wanted to be a rockstar. I started the same way my my initial thought was to be a Rockstar Rockstar. And then I realized that I was lacking one key ingredient and that was talent So I quickly switched to something that I felt I could do better and you still involved in music. It's a little bit more now I think in the You know fundraising levels over thinking of doing some some cancer onset or something like that to raise money for research. Yeah so I always Worth an aging. Since the early nineties was like enough to be a student of Roy while for Ucla was a pathologist there and it was my first mentor new at the time. The the world Most well known person working on calorie restriction and the longevity and saw I followed up on his on his he's working and So for the best Twenty seven years. We've been focusing on other. Take this old idea of station fiction and make it make it a newer idea that can be brought to the clinics all over the world so so Dr Longo. You've been looking into various diseases that are related to aging That I guess are anti longevity Diseases such as cancer and and auto immunity and cardiovascular disease obesity and how these diseases might be affected and possibly even untreated with a modification of Diet and With intermittent fasting. Yes so what we really focusing. Because he now is What I call the longevity program and and and saw a mouse Has It on. DVD program that is it's about two and a half years long Into I ran. The lifespan is two two and a half years but this the health span is maybe one and a half years of mice started developing cancer maybe after one and a half years out of the two and a half years lifespan so then the idea. Da is why is it that people don't get cancer in most cases until they're forty or fifty or older So there is clearly Did the possibility of getting cancer is under the control of this program. So what we're really talking about here are cells that have kind of an aging problem. Yeah that's what we're going after we're going to have to the fundamental changes in cells And in the collection of south that eventually will lead to dysfunction. What does the Diet that you are proposing that has been shown to have these immune modulating effects and the longevity? Well let me just interrupt for a second here You know I think we're talking about two different kinds of diets there's one there's the Intermittent Diet that you would do three times a year optimally on. But then there's your daily diet so can you comment on each of those we did Epidemiological study using the CDC database. A few years ago. Oh where we showed that Americans eight the highest level since they had About seventy five percents increase risk of overall mortality about three to four fold increased risk for developing cancer Compared to those that had the lowest protein intake so this is about you know out you eat every day and Now this was true only up to sixty five so if you When when the CDC asked the question two eight year-olds There was no longer true. In fact people eight year old were reporting. Having a law protein intake did not do very well So Oh you know this is really important that To understand that this is not we liked to have simple answers like low protein high-protein. This is good this this is bad. It doesn't work like that. It's a complex environment. You just have to learn how to navigate it and and it's not you know once you learn and you have the right physician or or or or Dietitian helping you. I think is fairly straightforward but there are a lot of data that says that high fat diet has an increased risk of colon cancer and breast cancer Animal fats and high protein seems to be Bought associated with increased mortality increased risk for Cancer increased risk for cardiovascular disease the ideal everyday diet seems to be a fish plus plus Vegan Diet That is you. We know high nourishment and low protein Then the fast moving the festival making that is really something very different. And it's not even intermittent in nature. Can you describe the intricacies of the fasting mimicking diet. What does it entail? Yeah so the fast making diet is is a law sugar. A high fat good fats are low. Protein colorist diet and fats. By that you mean Omega three versus Omega Six. Then what are you referring to good fats. I refer to Type of fats. That are associated. Will Jerry the And health span extension so the the olive oil plant plant based of a certain kind that the is for example Avocado as an daas thus far not been associated with longevity extension but Not have and so as olive oil So those yeah that's what we're focusing on the ones that provide the fats the certain type of fats but also that are being consistently associated with higher health status in longevity

How Often Should You Wash Your Coffee Mug?

"People love their coffee but most don't extend their profound affection to its trustee receptacle the Coffee Cup office workers are often guilty of such neglect merely rinsing and reusing their mug day after day or worse just dumping out the old coffee and feeling their cup with new brew a while oil. It seems that the mug would be just fine with such treatment after all hot water kills germs and you're the only person who uses your mug. Thank you very much. The truth is perhaps more I opening than the beverages inherent caffeine a mostly empty mug left to its own devices can quickly grow its own microbiome of course most bacteria are harmless. There are those that aren't we spoke by email with Melissa maker host of the Youtube Channel Clean my space. She said all sorts of germs and bacteria can live on in your cup especially if you're in a shared space cold and flu germs tend to travel and can easily lend honor in. Your Cup plus terms from your mouth and hands. We'll also transferred to your cup the warmer and damper the environment the more pleasing for bacteria to fester indeed the laundry list of possibilities ladies is daunting. We also spoke by email with Dr Terry Connell professor of microbiology and Immunology at the University of Buffalo they said Strip staff and any number of resident or transient oral bacteria which may include potential pathogens may reside in unwashed cups and of course if someone else should drink from from one cup bacteria from their mouths can be transferred into it office. Environments are particularly conducive to the spread of bacteria. Dr Childs Gerber a professor of microbiology at the University of Arizona published research findings back in nineteen ninety seven the continued to rock our world today his team assessed bacteria found bounded office coffee cups and coffee preparation areas and they discovered forty one percent of cups tested were contaminated with Calif- bacteria otherwise known as fecal bacteria correa and most of the time these bacteria are not harmful to people but they certainly can be especially to those with weakened or compromised immune systems the kicker the doctor group has team found that a small office cup Washer sort of like a mini dishwasher was all it took to eradicate these and other types of bacteria. The problem is as most people think of simple rinse and wipe is enough to keep germs at bay however this approach is definitely not enough to tackle such formidable opponents. Dr Connell said bacteria can adhere to the surface of the cup. Washing with soap is essential to remove those bacteria. That's why public health officials in England put out a plea back in January Kan.. For reusable cups users to thoroughly wash receptacles after every single drink to prevent the spread of illness. This was in response to a spike in Reusable Cup abuse since the nation started imposing so called La tax on disposable cups proper cleaning grows even more critical if the coffee in question has been doctored with cream or sugar DR Congo explained both of those substances contain nutrients for bacterial growth while water washing will remove most of the sugar the oils oilseed proteins and milk or cream require. The use of soap to remove as is what's known as a surfactant molecule of soap can grab hold of oily particles at one end and molecules of water at its other end thus helping dissolve and rinse away even stubborn grime so here are the easy steps to lessen the germs in in your coffee.

Headway Is Being Made But We cant slow down in race to end deadly Ebola outbreak in DR Congo,

"Is Connor Lennon from UN news. There are positive signs that the government's lead effort to end the deadly Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo has turned the corner but there's no room for complacency. That's according to the. UN's emergency Ebola Response Coordinator David Gresley who was at U N headquarters on Wednesday used to take part in a ministerial level meeting to assess the more than year long efforts to end the second worst outbreak Evan he spoke to UN uses Matt Wells well. I think we're we're kind of at a more promising place than we certainly were a few months ago. When we saw a number of attacks against Ebola responders particularly in the city of Timbo uh things have advanced I think the main difference now is that not only as a greater security for responders input Timbo outside with Tim O. Vinnie. There are a lot of areas that were inaccessible in the past where where a lot of groundwork has been done to try to gain community acceptance for the response which has had a very positive impact getting into areas where the viruses circulated on a regular basis has allowed an effective response to to follow and we're seeing the cases decline and in some cases dramatically from very high levels down to practically zero so I'm increasingly optimistic with what we see in the Beanie Timbo area. We just need to see this extended to other areas where we're seeing the virus continued to circulate now a lot of different parts of the UN are are involved in this effort from health officials nice to to blue helmets from the mission is the response is joined up and as coordinated as it needs to be from your perspective. Well coordination is always a work in progress so I think it's it's coming along like I would like it to There's always more that you can work together on that. We continue to find ways to collaborate share information but I think there's a good good good spirit and I think the most important thing is that we've been able to drive that coordination down to to the lowest level where whereas most effective it's really the people on the ground that make the difference so whether it's. who or it's UNICEF effort the World Food Programme UNDP UNFPA all involved on this I o M is involved evolved on this We're seeing really good collaboration we WANNA bring our NGO partners on board all of course supporting the government of DRC who continues is to leave this response and and we're seeing I particularly I would cite the city of coordination there where I really think that has come together very nicely and it's also where we're seeing the lowest level of transmission despite the fact that this is where the epidemic generally began Health Organization chief Doc tendrils said on Wednesday the risk of spreading across the border of DRC was still high. What are you doing to try and help. This effort to limit at the risk of the way to do that of course is to eliminate the virus itself this is a very very urban area. people are surprised to hear the Timbale. Oh has more than a million people at these are large cities and it's important to understand that it's also very mobile population which allows movement between Benny Kimball but also to Ugandan border to Goma quite quite easily one or two day trip very routine and that that becomes the problem so what needs to be done is two or three three things is good preparedness around the border areas good preparedness in provinces adjacent in case the virus gets into that area. wore importantly is really just dry up the source of the virus in that central area. That's been feeding into the Ugandan border feeding into Goma and then the threat will go down. Considerably on vaccination has been some criticism. UN responses being too cautious to selective and their needs now to be a much wider wide a program initiated. What what's your view on the right way on that now. Well obviously vaccinations are very useful to think is also important to note. That vaccination by itself is probably not sufficient to end the epidemic. It can put a brake on on the spread slow it down but I in itself is probably not gonNA stop the epidemic but also also saves lives that's extremely important so that the best use of the vaccine is a constantly evolving question how best utilize that which populations are at greatest risk and I think as as Dr Tendrils says we learn as we go along as we adapt as we see the situation as new tools become available like therapeutics extremely extremely important tool to add to the arsenal against Ebola a bit by bit. We're making a bullet into a more normalized disease. and I think ultimately ultimately what we would like to see is that the bullet treatment centers themselves be seen as a place where you go to get cured of Bulla not die every bullet which is often the perception that totally turns and transforms the psychological aspect of bill as a disease. I mean Katie there have been some serious obstacles to be able to reach suspected suitcases and bill to clamp down on this outbreak most obviously the the ongoing violence at the hands of armed groups and the Phibro political situation in that region engine house the effort going there and in terms of countering that and also how successful the effort to try and win hearts and minds of people to get the trust of local people especially in rural communities where they are quite understand very very distrustful pretty much anybody in authority on the political side of the election of president. She's Katie with a long ways to offsetting the the politicization of Boll back at the end of last year when people have been put timber were not allowed to vote for the presidency and there's a I take a new opportunity and and you see it even talking with local militia groups of an interest in finding a reconciliation with the government in a way to move forward. It's very early early in that process but it's a different attitude at this point in time that makes it a little bit easier to work with so I think all the political side some very positive things now on the on the security side. It's a little bit different different. That's a mix you have on the one hand the Allied Defense Forces a Ugandan led group. That's based in the DRC has used extreme means of of attack only military police targets civilian as well terrorist acts basically and killing tens and sometimes hundreds of people full That's a very serious threat that disrupted the response late last year that has been less of a problem since MANISCO together with the Congolese army led a an offensive against the group in late last year November which pushed them back far enough to longer and have a direct impact but they remain in ongoing danger to the response and military action will still be required to keep keep them at bay the more domestic militia groups groups locally known as my my are different kind of threat they they are very much embedded in the communities. They're not in opposition to the communities and they are very suspicious and distrustful of national security forces which is where a problem comes often in the communities. There's a big distrust over over the Bulla response itself so it's a difficult combination but not an impossible and and engagement of the right people who have influence over leaders of these groups can make a difference to try to open up access quite frankly where Ebola has circulated for a period of weeks six people have died from Bulla that to demystify and takes the myth away because people see real and then then it's another opportunity for engagements very tragic way for that to happen but what we're seeing particularly benefit timbo areas that many of the areas that were inaccessible where there was transmission one by one or opening up with acceptance and that's the key is acceptance. It's not overcoming insecurity with acceptance you get security with acceptance you get the ability to treat people people with acceptance you get to bring this to an end most recently in in the city of Benny there was one area health area that had the highest rate of transmission of any healthier in the country twice that of the second highest that was only a matter of weeks ago at the beginning of August by middle middle of August with a lot of work on the ground with governments and an NGO and UN support that area opened up to full acceptance now. There's hardly any case of Ebola there in one by one. We're seeing these health areas come around for that. and that's leading to what we're seeing on. The dramatic decline in cases is between Benny and Timbo the very area that fed all these other localities in Uganda Goma on the Rwandan border and South Cube so we need to they do now the same province which is now has the largest number of cases in the country to gain the confidence and acceptance of populations there that's incomplete and that I work at least intensifies we can protect those communities but also prevents the spread east and West from tour. I mean that's a real threat as we speak today today. So what more support what will help does the government and the UN led response needed a stage from the international community. I think first of all it's important to note the the the technical leadership of government for the EVOLA response is extremely well qualified. They know he bulla as well as anybody. In the world led by Professor William Bay so they have the technical expertise what's required is the kind of support that I've described of course financial support ongoing support and coordination locally. I think is important. The neutrality and impartiality the peacekeeping force brings national security forces often cannot bring in that kind of environment. These are all different aspects that that are important. I what I think we need to see as well as a continued improvement and preparedness sadness both in the country and outside we really don't want this to spread any further and if the the important thing is to detect early if you detect early rapid response as possible and you close it down very very quickly so we need to make sure that happens and the and the other thing is really required. Is there still areas that are inaccessible where there's no known transmission but we're not sure because we're not there isn't endemic diseases yeah well. It's not there's no evidence that it's in these areas but we should be there to make sure it has not come in and circulating quietly secondly it would be good to get into these areas in the event that infection does come into that area better to be there ahead of time working with communities supporting them in other ways so that when the infection does come where a far better position to deal with quickly quickly rather than allowing to come up as another hot spot possible the international emergency state status that the disease has now the outbreak has it at this point that that could be lifted some time in the in the near future as soon as it's a radically aided and it's clear that it's it's a radical that of course that will be lifted at the appropriate time I think we have several well several weeks at a minimum to go. We need to get probably well into the end of the year. There's a forty two day period at at the end of the last case before. It's finally declared so we're we're weeks and weeks away from that one thing. That's not require right now is complacency. Success is good but it's incomplete and it's always at risk and we can see an explosion of cases if we if we stop the the kind of support that's going on. We need to be everywhere all the the time with everything going so we just need that kind of support internationally to keep going until we finish the job one last thing. I would think that's important is that we need to start thinking about the postie bullet period. It's not too early to do that. We need to start thinking what we're going to do to support number one survivors because they will continue to have health problems after this is over secondly. There's the possibility that they still carry residual amounts of the virus. You can have a new cases uses. come up later on so the surveillance system needs to be there to make sure that that's detective quickly probably more importantly is the recovery of the of the systems on the ground whether it's health education have been affected by this and then a broader support to the public health system. The bulla outbreak of nature of this outbreak is a function of poor governance and poor public health systems. If those causes are not dealt with effectively then this the whole thing could happen once again so we have to the root cause of why this became such a large epidemic.

New emergency Ebola response chief in DR Congo promises more listening, to end frequent interruptions in fightback

"Newly appointed UN Ebola response chief in the Democratic Republic of the Congo DRC has promised to listen more to the fears and concerns of local people in a bid to end frequent interruptions, hampering the fight against the deadly virus response coordinator, David Gresley, who's also deputy, head of u n stabilization mission in the DRC Manisco told you a news that violence by numerous armed groups protests and demonstrations together with political mistrust had adversely affected the government and World Health Organization, led response, one thousand two hundred eighty died in the country's worst ever outbreak. Mr. Gresley is heading to the epicenter pretend bow to work closely with partners and local leaders to finally contain the outbreak. He spoke to you and uses Christina Silveira, it's a very serious situation on the ground were quite worried about the situation is continued for now. Ten months in terms of the response. But the democ has been circulating for over a year now. And one of the key problems that we've seen on the ground is that there have been frequent interruptions in the response, which gives a virus a chance to multiply and usually tend to days to two weeks later. We see a sharp increase after these interruptions, due to sometimes protests, sometimes attacks, physical attacks and demonstrations, override things that have disrupted the the response, and it's important to understand why the, the attacks are happening. Why protests are happening at cetera so that we can find a way to sustain a response in a way that it's not interrupted. And so that we can bring it to, to, to close. The virus doesn't care. We cannot just use a technical approach to the response to be eight show, a ministry of health in particular have the skills for that. They have the means on the ground for that. But it's not enough by itself. And you need a larger response, they deals with the issues that I've described of security, and resistance. If you're going to finally put an end to this epidemic. So B U N has announced that it's strengthening its operations and its strategy. You've been appointed coordinator for the urgent response against Bola. What are the changes that are going to be made on the ground? Is it just a merely of positions? No, that's not the intent at all the, the, the intent is to strengthen the broader support the technical response led by the ministry of health supported by WHO will certainly continue. But what will be put in place is a reinforced structure that will be looking at the security issues, the resistance issues more closely, and that will require a much closer work with a local population. He'll communities traditional leaders to understand where their concerns are why there might be resistance and build the confidence of the community and the support most importantly, so that we can create an environment allows the responders to do their job. And to bring this thing to an end. It's also a question of, of making sure that the people who may have been in contact with victims of, of Ebola are dente, fide and monitored in terms of their own health, and if they become ill that they can receive treatment that's, that's the key to actually breaking the transmission of Ebola. But when that is disrupted, and are those the and that tracking is lost, then the virus will continue to circulate we're fortunate that. It has not gone outside of the immediate area. It's not even covering the whole province. And I think there we have to think the very good efforts for vaccination has gone on that has helped contain it amongst some of the changes, you will be moving the decision making center, the operation center to Timbo the current epicenter, we will be moving the operational decision making to the center of the. Can timbo? I will go there myself, we will build a team around that to reinforce the team that are already there. There are senior UN and, and, and, and ministry of health personnel to ground already. I think we have to recognize that. So this is a compliment to what's already there, but was important is that we have rapid decision making on the ground that's not held up by bureaucracies of various organizations. And that's why the decision was taken to put senior leisurely ground who can take those decisions based upon what they see on a day-to-day basis strategic guidance will stay in concerto regional operations will be based in Goma that does not change, but the day to day response, and the, the adapting to each circumstances, that arise can only be done locally. What are you expecting these changes to mean on the ground concrete concretely for the population for the health workers? And for the attackers, obviously, we wanted to bring the Potomac to close as quickly as possible. But in order to do that. I think what the local community should expect is a much closer engagement on our part with them to understand their fears their expectations to provide clear information about how the epidemic is how it spreads. And how it can be treated and contained these are all extremely important that, that work be accelerated on the ground to, to build that confidence lifting. It'd be listening to the population. That's it. That is exactly it you have to listen to the population. They have to tell us what they're thinking. That's what that engagement means. You don't learn much by talking. You'll learn by by listening. So I think that's extremely important. I think people have been frustrated by the lack of, of being listened to, and, and it's important to overcome that. So that's extremely important. Do you have an idea of what is going on? Why there is so much mistrust, the situation. There is a bit complex of there's been conflict going on. For over twenty years. It's an area of political opposition, historically to, to the government in Incan Shasha. So there's a bit of a version of people coming in from the outside. Secondly, you, you when you see a situation where you have a massive response for one, one issue in this case of Bulla where other issues have been neglected for twenty years, people, ask questions, it's just a natural human thing. And that's some of the things that need to be talked through, and there may be -tunities to address other issues while addressing the ability issue talking about the issue of tax when there's a strong community acceptance and, and, and actual desire for something that, too can help on the security side. He started getting it from. Nation that tells you what, what may or may not happen, and how you may want to operate when that positive relationship is established. And as you as you rightly said earlier, you do that by listening to what people are thinking and feeling then you have the basis to move forward and constructive way. So we need to do this, it takes its own time to do this. We don't have a lot of times we have to find a way to structure that in, in an effective way and have an open door policy that allows that information and that exchange to take place as frequently as required for this to be resolved. You mentioned demonstrations before and political climate, which is usually contentious, or seize Kinshasa as other this area wasn't allowed to participate in the recent elections. Is that that is well they were able to, but only after the three months too late and. And that was a problem because when the announcement was made for the delay in the election in, in, in this in the territories around Binion boot Timbo, it was the reason cited by the, the electoral commission was the -able outbreak, which created a perception that bring me this as a political issue, and not a health issue those relations have now taken place. So that's less of an issue today. But that's only happened at the end of March. So that time period between did create that that perception, and it was unfortunate because I think it contributed to some of the delays and interruptions described.

DR Congo Ebola Clinic in North Kivu Attacked

"More than one thousand people have died from Ebola over the past ten months in the Democratic Republic of Congo health workers trying to contain the deadly disease are also under attack on Wednesday militia fighters killed at least eight people in the city of Tembo in the heart of the Bulla outbreak for the latest on how violence against health workers is complicating efforts to combat the disease. We now go to Tarek REBA. He's a field director at the International Rescue Committee, and is currently working on the bull response in the DRC. Welcome to the takeaway Tareq, thanks for having me was this latest attack related to A Bola. What what can you tell us about this attack? We've still gathering information on it that does seem to be some indications that it was once again linked directly to the abode response. But we don't have conclusive information. But yes, there's information pointing to that. What can you tell us about health workers and how they're being attacked right now. I think there's been sort of a gathering storm over several months now and been lots of accusations and rumors about certain activities such as back Saination where people feel that brother than helping them the vaccine may actually be sort of olitical ploy to inject them with A Bola that may be a little reasons for why this response is happening part of this is the cancelling of the election the national election, which was due in December and was held everywhere except in ten and Benny the areas directly affected by the response. And angered a lot of people who felt that they lost the right to vote because of a disease that they're not sure actually exists. How has the conflict in this area impacted efforts to contain Ebola requires a nuance dancer because actually was not necessary conflict area, but the wider area of North Kivu the province of North Korea where this outbreak is often. Of course has been for about twenty five years now. So there's a heavy presence of I'm groups what this does on a day to day basis is that obviously are operating an environment of insecurity and work in that sort of general sense of conflict, how quickly is the disease spreading, and what's the scale essentially of this outbreak right now at this point. This is the second largest outbreak in history. After the great west Africa at them from twenty fourteen fifteen in terms of the transmission rates had been some hope few months ago. But the last three or four months have seen continual increase daily renumber 's we've now had a record of twenty seven cage on a single day. But we've had a number of twenty plus days in the past weeks. We've always known that even when we reach those numbers. There's a lot of transmission that goes undetected. So even when we say twenty seven day that could have been far more cases possibly double as many. So that would put you out of very very high rate of transmission, it would also mean that we basically are complete the unable to to understand how that transmission is happening. And at those numbers, your it requires an enormous response both in terms of being able to detect those cases and being able to work with the communities so that they are transferred. So I think. In terms of level of alarm saw. No, one years bad as west Africa yet, but we should be very very alarmed about the situation right now, there is a vaccine that at least as being used on an investigative basis. Tell us about the vaccine and how successful it's been so far. So I think the vaccine we didn't have it in west Africa. I worked at IBM at the time. And I do think it has been a very useful tool. Especially in the initial months when we look at the one positive thing of this outbreak. It would be the geographic footprint, which has been relatively small all things considered and part of that could be attributed to the success of the vaccination in the in the beginning months of the outbreak. We've also had some recent studies that have come out of the vaccine about one hundred thousand doses have now been administered since the start of this outbreak in August. So we have quite a sample size. Now initial results are very positive positive possibly even more than we would have hoped for us on the one hand they show that those. That are vaccinated have a much lesser probability of contracting Bola. And Secondly in the second finding is more interesting and unexpected is that even for people that may have contracted bowl at the time of their survival rate goes up significantly, so there's a very positive findings. And now we need to make sure the community understands the benefits of axons action. Because recently, we have seen a number people refusing vaccination there a number that circulate around possible malicious intense behind the backs of nation, and that has caused a lot of people into area now to not want to be accented. Where's this infamous information coming from? I know the questions of room is very complicated. One we've been dealing with this this very much been politicized Asian around the rumors. So as mentioned, I think the election is one point clear contention that because this is a largely opposition held area. That may be for example. Uil a intent against those people for being positioned supporters. So a lot of those rumors come from there. And I do think we didn't do a good job of tackling them. And we need to improve in our community engagement in terms of working with communities in dispelling, the rumors and being very transparent and being very clear not messaging where do you see the bullet crisis headed after this? I think there's a reason for pessimism at the moment. The number of targeted incidents in the Tampa area has made it almost impossible to work. We're trying to resume and now we have renewed incident again, which is base. So I think for number of us. It's very difficult to see how things can move forward

"dr congo" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Briefing

"I'm joined in the studio by monocle twenty four Stephanie Kony's, and she has a selection of papers from grace from here in the UK. What you want to start deafening? The guardian as you know, it's International Women's Day today. So there's a very nice photo on from patriot. The guardian from a March student March actually in Milan, and there's a really nice two page spread inside as well with various protests and rallies marking the day across the world. But there's actually not that much coverage. You know, as as I would've expected I mean, there's also the it's mainly here in the UK the the other papers that I've selected I'll get to in a bit. Haven't haven't really marked at least on the on the front pages as much, but the Daily Telegraph is well has a piece on how banks need to to come clean and be more transparent about the gender pay gap. So so that's also quite an interesting piece if anyone wants to read more into it, but I'll get straight to the New York Times now on the front page. A piece about the latest A Bola outbreak in the DRC the Democratic Republic of Congo quite striking image of of people wearing. Active clothes, a funeral disinfecting a room from a person believed to have died of Birla. And you know, this this latest outbreak has lasted seven months now. And it's supposed to be the second largest ever. And this piece is quite interesting that the headline is a grim battle against panic distrust and a bolo so it's talking about how people don't really understand the bowler. But also that that quite cynical of something we've heard of before the organizations that are trying to help them because they just they just don't understand perhaps the nuances of you know, the society things likely the rituals surrounding death and burial so people as a result on getting tested. They aren't really, you know, they're avoiding treatment. So that you know, that that's a big issue politically speaking on the front page New York Times as you'd expect Paul Manafort the. Are we talking about ten of the coverage because we mentioned in a headlines? Of course, he's been given this jail sentence home. What's the verdict from the paper, you know? So everyone sort of saying that this is very light punishment manner forgiven less than four years faced long-term, so. He the, you know, he was meant to be given ninety could have been given one thousand nine hundred thousand four year prison sentence under the sentencing guidelines, and what legal experts saying in court and miss pieces, but what he was given actually amounts to one fifth of the lightest punishment than that he could have been given. But it's interesting what it says his that as we know half a dozen of the former Trump associates that have been prosecuted, Paul Manafort who as Trump's former presidential campaign chairman actually was given the harshest punishment out of all of the art of all of those. So that is something to note, it is and I wonder whether it's part of a big game or or along the game in terms of prosecutions that may or may not be forthcoming. So we should we should wait and say time, certainly for one more. Definitely. Yeah. So the Boston Globe. Of course, again, another headline on Manafort facing facing possible. Twenty four years in jail manifold gets less than four. But also really interesting piece on the front cover about Brooke brookline's, Parcham, not Brooklyn Brooklyn, which is in the greater Boston area. Nice local story about the first shop in Boston that selling recreational cannabis so paranoid, quite a big deal in what it's saying here is that although they were open to giving up medical prescriptions. Now, they're open to more general, you know, the retail market the larger market, and they're quite worried apparently in this neighborhood of crowd control and of the streets getting busy because it's it's the closest shop to central Boston. That's that actually sells recreate this was quite smart. And as there's a famous old story country club. I think they're so you can imagine the kind of neighborhood house where it's not the kind of clientele and necessarily maybe. Maybe. Do you wanna throw a quick a headline leading headline from the Greek newspapers today definite? Yeah..

"This is fucking Menendez for UN news, you'd be in the western Democratic Republic of Congo or DRC we sample so go city in the aftermath of days long massacred last month, which left at least five hundred thirty five victims discovered by you when investigators in communal burial sites. That's according to Florence Marshall spokesperson for the UN mission in the country Manisco in an interview with UN news on Wednesday. She described how the brutal inter-ethnic killings were carried out in a very organized manner with many houses and public buildings. Also this -joyed during the violence between new and but Sunday community members that was sparked by a dispute over a local chiefs borough. She told us calcium, but although the area is now calm conditions remained tense and much of the local population has fled across the Congo. River into neighboring Republic of the Congo. Between sixteen and eighteen some last June two thousand eighteen and you'll be district for villages where attach it was. There was only a for I- tension between two communities, but in the in the new living in our area, we should located west tunnel after of further Democratic Republic of the Congo in denial nine only province along the Congo river. So it was a vitamin plus it aq- between two communities during three days between the sixteen and eighteen of December.
