CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC

INTERSOS INTERVENTION

INTERSOS’s first intervention in the Central African Republic dates back to the beginning of 2014, to assist the population fleeing from the violence of the internal conflict. In 2017, we monitored human rights violations for displaced persons and border control in 3 areas (Ouham, Nana Gebrizi and Kemo). Furthermore, support activities were implemented for education and to promote school reintegration. Finally, food was distributed to displaced families in the Ouham region.

CONTEXT

Since 2012, the Central African Republic has undergone a deep and complex crisis. The security situation in the country remains unstable and unpredictable, making humanitarian access difficult and limiting the response to the population’s needs. Since January 2017, there has been a serious deterioration in the number of internally displaced persons, which reached a total of 600,000 people. The number of refugees also increased to 521,000, bringing the total number of internally displaced persons to 1.1 million, the largest number ever recorded in the country.

On a population of 4.6 million, 2.5 million people need humanitarian aid. Basic services are dysfunctional or non-existent in many areas, and 22% of the population has no sustainable access to health facilities, which are not functional due to the lack of equipment, personnel and medicines. About 1.1 million people are in a situation of food insecurity, and in more than half of the prefectures the level of Severe Acute Malnutrition has reached the emergency threshold of 2%.
