The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) faces considerable challenges with regards to access to healthcare; only 40% of the population have access to a health center; 30% of health centers have adequate infrastructure, 32% have electricity and 6% have a water source and the majority of health centers (83%) lack necessary medical equipment. 

The objective of this project is to improve health access and health services, particularly maternity and pediatric services, in the Kwango province by constructing 15 health centers in replacement to the ones currently built with non sustainable materials and add  pavilions in 2 existing general hospitals in Boko and Kimbau. The construction of the health centers and pavilions will increase the facility's capacity to receive and care for patients. The project also aims to increase the quality of care received and improve the functionality of the centers in the health facilities.
