Even if the second war in DR Congo officially ended in 2003, the country has not yet recovered from its impact. Many parts of the country are still affected by continuous violence. Especially the population in the province of south-Kivu suffers from armed conflicts. Due to these ongoing conflicts, the infrastructure is debilitated or even destroyed. Many roads are not accessible as they are not maintained or repaired.
Without roads, humanitarian aid can not reach the population. The population has no or only limited access to hospitals, markets, and other communities. However, health and well-being of the population are always closely connected with a countrys infrastructure.
