Work Accidents, Occupational Diseases and Social Security Mechanisms in Private Companies in Lubumbashi (D.R. Congo): Situation and Perspective

Ndjate Nguwa Moise | Kalonji Mulumba Nathan [4]

Abstract: Through this study, the authors present a questioning of the professional trajectory of workers in the Democratic Republic of Congo, particularly those working in the private sector in Lubumbashi. Although the National Social Security Fund exists, its effectiveness has yet to be demonstrated. This study explores organizational factors and legal mechanisms that explain the precariousness that characterizes the social protection system in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The results of the research question the effectiveness of the legislator's action as well as the passivity of public policies implemented in the D.R. Congo. To remedy this state of affairs, we suggest a pluralist and realistic approach based on the re-visitation of the legal framework and the liberalization of the social security sector. This strategy should facilitate each Congolese to recover his or her rights to social protection.
