violence and displacement in Bria

Central African Republic

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

Millions of people are dependent on humanitarian assistance. MSF sees 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 birth.
