    Health workers in the Democratic Republic of Congo are struggling to contain a measles outbreak.

    More than 4,000 people, many of them children, have died so far this year.

    A vaccination campaign is ongoing but efforts are being hampered by access to health centres, the security situation across the country and mistrust.
