Why we invest

Amani Global Works is building a primary health system to provide quality care in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, starting with Idjwi (population 300,000), an island in Lake Kivu between DRC and Rwanda.  It’s a place in desperate need of primary care: families average 8.5 children, one of the highest rates in the world, and life expectancy is 25 years.  Amani's system has three main elements: well-managed clinics; proactive community health workers; and a high-quality referral hospital that works seamlessly with clinics and health workers.  Amani's results in Idjwi can influence the re-emerging health system in eastern DRC.
