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.


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.

Note: Since 2019, a total of 32 professionals graduated with a Master’s degree. These local trainers, now qualified, are able to take over from the MAPS program by passing on themselves a good part of the training previously given by foreign trainers.

In March 2021, a total of 21 students were writing their final paper.

Annual overall funding objective: $20,000

  • $3,500 covers the travel and accommodation cost for a professor teaching in the Master’s program
  • $1,500 covers the cost of a scholarship for a year for a Master’s student
