An ongoing crisis: Mortality in DRC

The Congolese people have been victims of war for over a decade. The most recent conflit caused:

  • Mass displacements
  • Collapse of health systems
  • Food shortages

All of these have contributed to a major increase in mortality ... deaths equivalent to the state of Colorado or country of Denmark ... all in a decade!
