WHO reports in 2010 that the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) private health sectors stepped to filling up health system delivery by lack of state health care provision?

In DRC's state-building many NGOs and government partners interacted in multiple arenas with multiple stakeholders' health policies are presented is a need to conclude that a lot of improvement more efforts and resources are required (WHO, 2010).

NGOs and governmental states share the common interest of providing health services, but their institutional interests vary. Though independent, health actors interact in a variety of ways to solve public health problems in the DRC. Through longstanding patterns of interactions regarding processes, state and non-state partners have developed a de facto networked health sector governance that accounts for the survival of the fragile health DRC context.
