ICRC response to COVID-19 in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

The ICRC has had a continuous presence in the country for many years and works in partnership with hospitals and health centres, water-supply services, children’s centres and prisons. We have reorganized our humanitarian operations to meet a new priority: ensure the continuity of essential services to the population by providing equipment and supplies to deal with the virus and developing targeted support for COVID-19 measures with our partners.

We remain actively involved in helping communities to overcome the consequences of armed conflict while also helping them in the fight against a pandemic that has become a part of everyday life. This latest response is the focus of the facts and figures below.
