Democratic Republic of the Congo

ICAP’s activities in the Democratic Republic of the Congo focus on HIV prevention, care, and treatment. To advance this work, ICAP has developed specific strategies for those who are hardest to reach, including children and adolescents, as well as key populations such as female sex workers and men who have sex with men. In addition, ICAP is working with the Ministry of Health to strengthen human resources for health—especially for nursing and midwifery—to address public health challenges such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and to increase the resiliency of the DRC’s health systems in the face of emergencies such as disease outbreaks, natural disasters, or civil conflicts.
