Abstract :

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.
