Democratic Republic of the Congo

Supporting the DRC to improve health outcomes since 2010.

The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is dedicated to achieving universal health coverage and improving health outcomes for all its people. PATH has worked with the DRC since 2010, strengthening health systems and supporting its digital health transformation. Collaborating with national and sub-national partners, we prepare for and respond to emerging health threats in the Central Africa’s country.

Universal Health Coverage

PATH accompanies the digital health–transformation agenda in the DRC, to improve health and well-being through achieving health equity. Working with the national agency for clinical engineering and digital health (ANICNS) and the president’s Universal Health Coverage team, PATH is supporting the national strategic planning process for the digital transformation, with support from the US Agency for International Development’s Digital Square project. As part of it, PATH supported DRC to develop a costed digital health investment roadmap to prioritize and cost potential investments in digital health.

Preparing for epidemics

PATH supports epidemic outbreak preparation and response in the DRC. When the COVID-19 pandemic began, or the Ebola outbreaks erupted, PATH worked with Resolve to Save Lives to provide direct, rapid support to the national and sub-national surveillance teams. PATH collaborates with the DRC to collect and digitize data collection and analysis to improve and speed up decision-making processes to save lives.
