DR Congo country pullquote

It is so satisfying to see change in people who were previously accustomed to working in a culture of ineffective management, with few rules or guidelines.

Expanding Our Impact

Civil war and corruption have plagued the Democratic Republic of the Congo, a country with tremendous natural resources. Despite this instability, Abt Associates-led projects are working to reduce the burden of malaria – the leading cause of child morbidity and mortality. We also are helping the country’s health system decentralization effort and efforts to improve training of public health professionals.

Maternal and infant mortality rates in DRC are among the highest in the world, and approximately 30 percent of children under five are malnourished.
