The INRB of Kinshasa and Inserm have identified the Ebola Zaire strain as responsible for the epidemic currently raging in the DRC.

“Our experience in Guinea during the 2014 Ebola outbreak, the REACTing platform under the responsibility of Prof. Yazdanpanah, and the North / South collaborations put in place allowed us to better prepare and respond quickly”, says Pr Yves Lévy, CEO of Inserm.
