DR Congo VII
Life on the Congo river, January 2018
In remote areas down the river from Kisangani, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s Tshopo province, the incidence of maternal and infant mortality is extremely high as preventable diseases are not treated.
Now a programme training health workers aims to make vital medical care more accessible. Kate travelled out to DR Congo in January 2018 to document the effect that the programme is having on the local population of Kisangani.
