Angola lies on the southern Atlantic coast of Africa and the majority of the country is divided from the exclave of Cabinda by the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The country has been embroiled in conflict for most of its post-independence history, a history largely overseen by the President José Eduardo dos Santos, who remains in power. High rates of poverty, child mortality, malnutrition and poor health and education provision are among the most basic challenges to human rights in the country.
