Several women and children die in South Kivu in eastern DR Congo due to insufficient health facilities in this part of the country. This insufficiency is more evident in the territories of the province where the patients, mainly pregnant women, travel long distances to reach qualified health facilities. This situation favors the use of traditional medicine and self-medication. In Mwenga territory, for example, medical sources inform that some women are leaving villages far from Mwenga center where there is a hospital center for their care. Many of them give birth midway before reaching this hospital and others die even from health complications. The same is true in Shabunda territory where some patients are evacuated by air to modern health facilities with what this implies for the household economy. In almost all the territories of the province of South Kivu, there is a scarcity of health facilities qualified in the care of the sick. The coordination of civil society, understands that from Walungu territory passing through Kabare to Kalehe have the same problem of caring for the sick. The organization DFF (Dynamics of Women and Girls in Action) notes that in rural entities where these structures pose problems, health professionals are also becoming scarce. This opens a breach for charlatans who take advantage of the ignorance of the locals to replace doctors. Unfortunately, this situation favors the use of traditional medicine and self-medication. To find a solution to this problem, the Minister of Health plans to build health centers near residents in several localities in the province, in order to facilitate access to quality health care. The organization DFF (Dynamics of Women and Girls in Action) recalls that health is a right and an obligation, from which the authorities must redouble their efforts to align themselves with the objectives of sustainable development, SDG which envisages an allocation of '' one doctor per household. Despite this, the inhabitants, in particular women and children, remain the first victims of the inadequacy of health facilities in the province of South Kivu in eastern DR Congo.
