Need

A lack of qualified nurses and midwives contributes to the Democratic Republic of Congo’s low life expectancy, as well as its high rates of maternal and newborn mortality.

Action/results

LINCCO supports a variety of projects to improve the skills of nurses and midwives. This includes helping the Institute for Advanced Studies in Nursing to introduce and sustain a Master’s program in health administration for nurses and midwives, with the first 20 graduating in 2018. LINCCO also provides scholarships for students in the Bachelor’s program in nursing.
