Ebolarchive: Listening to the unheard voices of the DRC 10th Ebola outbreak
Ebolarchive is an oral history project to collect testimonies from frontline humanitarians who worked in the tenth Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo between 2018 and 2020 in North Kivu and Ituri provinces. The project is a collaboration with researchers from Université Catholique du Graben, Butembo, DRC and Sciences Po, Paris. Through these oral histories, the project aims to better understand issues of power and inequality embedded in the Ebola response, the ethics of triage, trust in scientific messaging, and the way that epidemics inevitably become intermeshed in complex political and social histories.
