Commissioned by the IUCN Species Survival Commission to serve as a first response for wildlife health concerns across the world.
Ebola hemorrhagic fever outbreaks have been seen in the Kibaale District of Western Uganda (confirmed as Ebola Sudan) and the Haut-Uele district in Province Orientale in the Democratic Republic of Congo (confirmed as Ebola Bundibugyo). The two outbreaks do not appear to be epidemiologically linked. Members of the IUCN SSC Wildlife Health Specialist Group are involved in the response to both outbreaks.
