Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC): In 2018, UNICEF will strengthen its response to the humanitarian needs in the Republic of Congo, in line with its development strategies, focusing on the Pool, Bouenza and Likouala Departments, where needs and vulnerabilities are most acute.

Expansion of Humanitarian Aid Services to Republic of Congo

UNICEF will continue to expand health and nutrition services,  while providing displaced persons, refugees and host communities with early recovery interventions focusing on education and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). Water points and latrines will be constructed or rehabilitated to improve access to safe water and sanitation.

UNICEF will reach children in need with emergency primary health care services and immunization. Children who are out of school due to the crisis will gain access to learning spaces and quality education through the rehabilitation of schools and the provision of learning materials.
