It is essential that everyone gets the care it needs, when they are needed and in its community.
That's why Universal Health Coverage is this year's theme for the World Health Day, April 7, 2019.

Although countries in all regions of the world are making progress in this direction, millions of people still do not have access to health care. Still others, by the millions, are forced to choose between care and other daily expenses such as food, clothing or even housing.



It is because our most valuable and inalienable capital is our health that HPP-Congo works in Community Health because the DRC, like many other developing countries, still do not enjoy the living conditions necessary to maintain a healthy life. Infrastructures are weak and access to medicines difficult, not to mention the trafficking of drugs
