At A Glance: The Lemba Imbu primary healthcare clinic (CSCOM) is one of three pilot projects spearheaded by SD DR Congo that collectively represent communities working in harmony with local health officials to provide quality, accessible and sustainable health services to highly underserved, largely rural populations.

Goals: Provide the local community with critical health services including pre- and post-natal care, vaccinations, general consultations and treatment and mosquito nets. Co-manage a health mutual association, whereby individuals and families make small, regular financial contributions to help ensure the long term sustainability of the clinic. 

Results: Since opening in June 2012, the Lemba Imbu CSCOM has provided 2,025 prenatal consultations (and subsequent births), 4,239 vaccinations to mothers and children, and 1,822 pre-school consultations for diseases such as malaria and HIV/AIDS.
