    Zairian health statistics are similar to those of other countries in Central Africa. Life expectancy at birth in 1992 was estimated at fifty-two years for males and fifty-six years for females. While unimpressive by United States standards, the statistics on life expectancy have improved markedly, a real achievement given the challenges to public health the country faces.

    Data as of December 1993
