Malaria peak in Batangafo

Central African Republic

Years of bloody but largely neglected conflict in the Central African Republic (CAR) have resulted in thousands being killed or wounded and millions being displaced.

Millions of people are dependent on humanitarian assistance. Our teams see the direct consequences of violence on the health of individuals and entire communities: wounded people needing care, children not able to reach medical facilities during malaria season, vaccination coverage and HIV and tuberculosis (TB) treatment interrupted, and pregnant women left without assistance before, during or after giving birth.

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