Annemarie Boks works in DR Congo as a Director of an Aids Awareness Program established by the CECA 20 (Communauté Evangélique au Centre de l’Afrique) church.

DR Congo is the largest country in sub-Saharan Africa by area. With a population of over 75 million,it is the most populated officially Francophone country, the fourth most populated nation in Africa and the nineteenth most populated country in the world.

After training as a nurse, followed by Bible Training in Belgium and a training in tropical medicine in Antwerp, Annemarie left in 1989 for the first time to DR Congo (then Zaire). From 1989 until 1998 Annemarie taught at a nursing school.

After a forced evacuation in 1998, Annemarie obtained a Master’s Degree in Community Health at the University of Liverpool in 1999. Since 2002 she has been involved in the coordination of the Aids Awareness Program of the CECA 20 church.

In 2007 she moved to Adi, in the very north-east of DR Congo, where she now works to develop training for pastors, including leading workshops, as she seeks to support and encourage them in their ministry among those who are living with HIV/Aids.
