DR Congo

The republic in Central Africa has major human rights problems.
The DR Congo is the second largest country in Africa in terms of area and the fourth largest with a population of around 100 million, according to the Human Development Report 2021/2022. The country is also one of the richest in raw materials in the world. Nevertheless, it is one of the poorest due to exploitation, corruption and years of war. The country's social and health care systems are very poor. Subsistence farming prevails in most rural regions. Human rights are little respected, especially in war zones.
