Supplies in the DRC

Healthcare institutions in the Democratic Republic of Congo often lack proper equipment and staff to meet staff and patient needs. In rural areas, access to healthcare is nearly impossible. 

YAACAN has committed to helping provide medical supplies and is teaming up with local medical teams to help improve the healthcare system in the DRC.
