Since 2016, Intersos has resumed its activities in Chad to respond to the emergency related to the presence and attempts of territorial expansion by Boko Haram and other armed groups in the region. The approach adopted in the country includes the health treatment of moderate and severe acute malnutrition while also acting on some of the main causes of malnutrition, such as food insecurity, poor knowledge of nutrition and childcare, and little access to drinking water.
This is coupled with the distribution of agricultural kits, training on agricultural techniques and the reorganization/expansion of the irrigation system.

The conflict in the Lake Chad basin has intensified over the past two years due to violent clashes between the armed group Boko Haram and the Chadian army, which have driven millions of people from their homes, preventing them from gaining access to essential services and destroying the local infrastructure. The conflict has hit the four countries of Lake Chad – Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria, and in Chad alone there are 70,000 displaced persons in the entire Lake region and about 7,000 refugees from Nigeria. The displacement accentuates the pressure on the already scarce resources and on the weak basic infrastructure, negatively affecting the region’s food and health situation. This food and nutrition crisis, the displacements, epidemics and natural disasters contribute to exacerbating the humanitarian needs and amplifying the existing vulnerabilities.
