Titre : Official developpement assistance and health in the DRC : impact and lessons learned1
Auteur (s) : Bobo B. Kabungu
Health is one of the primary concerns of public authorities throughout the
world. In recent years, studies on its determinants have multiplied, with, at the heart
of the debate, the economic and social determinants that are supposed to guide policies.
Among these determinants of health, this article focuses on official development
assistance, which is studied econometrically, using the ordinary least squares method,
in relation to life expectancy in the DRC, based on time series data from 1970 to
2015. The results show that the aid received has a significant but negative impact on
the health of the population, pointing to a problem of institutional quality that may
negate the impact of financial assistance.
