Currently, IOM has a regional SRHR-HIV Knows No Borders project, funded by the Kingdom of the Netherlands, that aims to contribute to greater freedom of choice for the target populations regarding their sexuality by focusing on the following results areas: 1: demand creation for SRHR-HIV services; 2) facilitating supply of and accessibility to responsive sexual and reproductive health and HIV services; and 3) creating an enabling environment. Through IOM’s continuous engagement with the UNJoint Team and through the engagement contributing to the planning of the Joint Programme of Support for AIDS 2018-2020, it was identified that IOM was the ideal agency to receive some support funding for working with sex workers in the sites identified in the SRHR-HIV Knows No Borders project from the 2018 Country Envelop (UBRAF).
Ebola Outbreak in North Kivu and Ituri DRC 2018 – Points of Entry SurveillanceRegion/Country(Coverage): Southern Africa, Democratic Republic of the Congo
Start Date: August 1, 2018
End Date: January 31, 2019
Population mobility was identified as a significant risk for disease transmission in this outbreak, as the epicentre of the disease is well linked with the heavily populated town of Goma and Kampala through key transit towns of Butembo and Beni through land road and by the lakes. In order to mitigate transmission risk and control the outbreak, IOM and MoH conducted joint assessments at various points of entry (POE) in North Kivu and Ituri, to gauge the strength of the area's epidemiological surveillance system. IOM has supported the deployment of 10 epidemiologists, medical doctors and hygiene specialists to key border areas to conduct POE surveillance, risk communication, hand washing, and hygiene promotion.

Ebola Outbreak Response in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC)Region/Country(Coverage): Southern Africa, Democratic Republic of the Congo
Start Date: May 16, 2018
End Date: August 15, 2018
Ministry of Health DRC declared Ebola outbreak with 21 suspected cases including 17 deaths in Ikoko Impenge health Area (AS) located in Bikoro health zone (ZS) in the province of Ecuador. IOM’s response strategy focuses on sanitation control and population mobility flow monitoring at border space areas, with a particular focus on key Point of Entries and at the identified vulnerable spaces. Moreover, IOM will support the MOH’s Border Health Programme in the affected health zones with risk communication and IPC activities. In addition, understanding mobility flows is critical to facilitate the prediction of possible disease transmission patterns and to enhance targeted response activities such as active case finding, contact tracing, and localization. Therefore IOM is proposing to conduct a rapid Population Mobility Mapping in Bikoro Health Zone and nearby areas to assist in guiding the evidence-based response.
