In this way, local infrastructure and networks can be established, helping to ensure the availability of healthcare, counselling and direct assistance for women and girls. Here medica mondiale concentrates on cooperation with women's organisations in the Great Lakes region of Central Africa, including Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Uganda.
