Dr. William Clemmer has been heading up IMA World Health’s urgent response efforts in the region, working with the local communities to stop the spread of Ebola Virus Disease in 25 of the most-affected areas in the North Kivu and Ituri Provinces, where nearly 1.2 million people live. The work, carried out in cooperation with DRC’s government and the World Health Organization Strategic Response Plan, is being funded by the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance.

“This is the most challenging outbreak because of the context,” Clemmer, who has responded to two previous Ebola outbreaks, said.

Hi Dr. Clemmer. Just wanted to let you know that there are cures for Ebola. They are very effective and you can find them on the Facebook Group page I created called The Ebola Cures. We aren't selling anything there but just providing the information for health professional and the public. I'll paste the link here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ebolacures/
