Abstract

Between July 1973 and December 1974, 304 autopsies were done at Hopital Mama Yemo, Kinshasa, Republic of Zaire. The causes of death and sudden death were tabulated and analyzed. The frequency of various diseases and groups of diseases among all the individuals and a large subset of individuals who died traumatically are tabulated and discussed. The present report is the most quantitative, albeit only, current estimate of mortality and prevalence of diseases in Zaire.
