The latest Ebola outbreak has hit the war-torn North Kivu province of the DRC (Democratic Republic of the Congo), and experts are struggling to contain it. Ebola outbreaks have captivated news media and audiences around the world since the devastating 2013 – 2016 West African Epidemic. However, most are still in the dark about what Ebola is, how it spreads and why it’s so rampant in Africa.

Knowledge can help us fight not just the disease, but the fear and misconceptions that are often attached.
