Malaria peak in Batangafo

Central African Republic

Thousands of people have been killed or wounded and millions displaced during years of bloody – but largely neglected – conflict in the Central African Republic.

MSF sees the direct consequences of violence on the health of the individuals and entire communities we serve. Wounded people needing care. Children unable to reach medical facilities during malaria season. The interruption of vaccination coverage and treatment for HIV and tuberculosis (TB). Women left without assistance before, during and after giving birth.

We are also responding to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic in the Central African Republic.
