Conflict’s Impact on the Population in Eastern DRC

The population of the Kivu provinces in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo is fighting to survive, not only against the bullets flying in the latest peak of this long-running conflict but also against the vacuum of infrastructure and health resources.

Since April 2012, MSF has treated more than 200 people wounded during clashes between armed groups. Yet the number of patients admitted with bullet wounds or machete cuts only hints at the impact this conflict is having on the health and well-being of people in this troubled region.Photo: DRC 2012 © Emily Lynch/MSF
