meningitis epidemic in the province


It should be known that the disease is due to a bacterium that is transmitted from one person to another through drops of respiratory secretions. We must respect the preventive measures against Covid, because by respecting these measures we also follow most preventive measures against meningitis.

Dr Gervais Folefack Tengomo, WHO’s Chief of Staff in the DRC

The good news is that there is a vaccine to prevent this disease. The Ministry of Health and the WHO are working on how to organize a vaccination campaign.
