ADF International


Democratic Republic of Congo (33rd Session)


ADF International is a global alliance-building legal organization that advocates for religious freedom, life, and marriage and family before national and international institutions. As well as having ECOSOC consultative status with the United Nations (registered name “Alliance Defending Freedom”), ADF International has accreditation with the European Commission and Parliament, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, and the Organization of American States, and is a participant in the FRA Fundamental Rights Platform.

This report explains why the Democratic Republic of Congo must take urgent steps to end the violence that is ravaging the country and ensure a peaceful transition of power by thoroughly investigating and prosecuting all human rights violations perpetrated against its own people, including its violent repression of peaceful protest and religious worship; and why the country must allocate increased resources to its healthcare system, especially for basic obstetric care, with the goal of reducing its high levels of maternal mortality.
