“This is Roger. He arrived in our Measles Treatment Centre in Katanga, Democratic Republic of Congo, with a fever of 41 degreeS Celsius. His parents know measles well: two of their children over the age of six died last year. With more than 20,000 cases and 300 deaths officially reported so far in 2015, the measles outbreak in Katanga is the largest since 2011. Since MSF raised the alarm in June, the situation has deteriorated further and sufficient resources are still lacking. Roger recovered and was released a few days later. © Anne Pellichero/MSF
