Democratic Republic of Congo

The DR Congo topped the measles outbreak list in 2011 with more than 134,000 recorded cases (possibly a fraction of actual cases) In 2012, the country recorded almost 74,000 measles cases. By mid-2013, it had 54,000 cases and almost 800 recorded deaths.  With support from GAVI and the M&RI, the country is now planning a phased measles campaign to begin in September and reach four provinces this year, and should finish by July 2014.
