Today we share fresh video footage and staff testimonies after MSF’s large scale yellow fever vaccination and vector control activities in Matadi, capital of Kongo Central.
An MSF team overcame tremendous challenges in vaccinating a large urban population of 350.000 people, which required special resources and innovative approaches.

Currently there is no cure for yellow fever, and prevention is essential to protect people and stop the outbreak. Today, MSF treats yellow fever patients and continues active health promotion and vector control activities.
