Capacity Africa: Venue and travel
Ebola outbreak in the DRC
Capacity Media is aware of the current situation and we are carefully monitoring it. As always, the health and safety of our participants is our primary concern and it is at the forefront of any decisions we take. Furthermore, we are continuously reviewing the ongoing situation through updates posted on trusted official government websites such the foreign travel advice from the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the official website of the Rwandan Ministry of Health. Given the official reports, the event will be taking place on 11th and 12th September in Kigali, Rwanda.
