Abstract

Many livelihoods are reliant on frequent movement across the shared border of the DRC and Uganda, which can complicate procedures to prevent the spread of virulent diseases such as Ebola. Professor Grace Akello describes events surrounding Uganda’s 2019 outbreak, and the effects of government health interventions that seek to remain partial to its citizens.
