More than 50 women have accused aid workers from the World Health Organization and leading NGOs of sexual exploitation and abuse during efforts to fight Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo. In interviews, 51 women – many of whose accounts were backed up by aid agency drivers and local NGO workers – recounted multiple incidents of abuse, the Guardian reports, mainly by men who said they were international workers, during the 2018 to 2020 Ebola crisis. UN secretary-general António Guterres called for the allegations to be “investigated fully”.
