The health policy in the Democratic Republic of Congo and the 9th EDF

A true challenge for the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Health Programme 9th EDF seeks progressive and innovative health service. Conceived and funded by the Congolese Government and the European Commission (9th European Development Fund), the program falls within the priority program of the government (PAP).

The PS9FED has two main objectives:

  • 1. Improving the implementation of the sectoral strategy of the Ministry of Health.
  • 2. Improving systems of health financing to increase the access to care.

From an operational perspective, the objective is also to improve the quality of care, to make care more accessible through the introduction of a third payment mechanism (in cash or essential generic drugs), to improve management practices and finally to modernise the health administration
