Central African Republic
Despite the increasing health crisis in Central African Republic (CAR), appeals for assistance have not been met and it remains an underfunded and “forgotten” emergency in one of the poorest country in the world.
Health indicators have continued deteriorating rapidly in recent years as internal conflict has persisted causing widespread displacement and the destruction of the health infrastructure. An estimated 2.2 million people, over 60% of the population, have been affected by the conflict. The country is also host to over 50,000 refugees, mainly from neighbouring Sudan but also from Chad, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and another 19 African countries..
