Abstract

Family medicine is a relatively new discipline in the Democratic of the Congo. It was developed under South–South and Churches Collaboration with the aim of responding in a cost-efficient manner to the crisis of health practitioners in mostly Christian and protestant hospitals based in rural areas in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
