Abstract

As the global Millennium Development Goals program has come to an end, it is time to evaluate the efforts of various countries that have subscribed to this vast program launched since the beginning of the third millennium. As far as we are concerned in this work, we are evaluating developing countries according to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) in general and in particular the fourth objective: "to reduce infant mortality by 2/3 until 2015 ". The main objective of this paper is therefore to verify the achievement of this objective in the DRC for the period 1990 to 2015. Our analyze of the data collected at the World Bank site on the infant mortality rate (per 1,000 live births) led to the conclusion that the DRC had reduced the infant mortality by 3/10, A value below the MDG threshold fixed at 2/3; In spite of the many strategies undertaken by the DRC for this purpose. This shows that the DRC has not reached the fourth Millennium Development Goal until 2015.
