Health experts meet in Uganda on regional
response to DR Congo Ebola outbreak

KAMPALA (Xinhua) -- Health experts from the east African region have met in Uganda to devise a regional approach to the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Edmond Mwebembezi, communications officer at the World Health Organization (WHO) Uganda office, told Xinhua by telephone on Tuesday that the experts will develop and review cross-border collaboration on disease surveillance, emergency preparedness and response plans to prevent the spread of the deadly disease.

The two-day meeting, which has drawn experts from Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, South Sudan, Tanzania, Kenya and the DRC, started on Tuesday in Entebbe, 40 km south of the capital Kampala.

WHO regional experts met last Tuesday in the northwestern Ugandan district of Arua to share information and best practices on preventing the spread of Ebola virus from the DRC.

Uganda is on high alert against Ebola and all travelers from the DRC are screened before coming into the country.
