Supporting the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s health system transformation

The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is dedicated to achieving universal health coverage (UHC) and improving health outcomes for all its people. PATH has worked with the DRC for decades, strengthening health systems and supporting its digital health transformation.

Preparing for epidemics

PATH has supported epidemic outbreak preparation and response in the DRC for seven years. When the COVID-19 pandemic began, PATH worked with Resolve to Save Lives to provide direct, rapid support. PATH worked with the DRC’s COVID-19 Technical Secretariat to digitize data collection and analysis with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. PATH is also advising the COVID-19 Presidential Task Force.

Country-led transformation

PATH advocates for a digital health–transformation agenda in the DRC. Working with the DRC’s national agency for clinical engineering and digital health (ANICNS) and the president’s UHC 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.
