Country/Region

July 16, 2014

A retrospective mortality survey conducted by Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) between March 26 and April 8, 2014, found that 8 percent (2,599 people) of the members of the families who took refuge in Sido, in southern Chad, died between November 2013 and April 2104, during a period of persecution targeting the Central African Republic’s (CAR) Muslim minority.

The Central African Republic today finds itself in a state of chronic medical emergency, yet the commitment of the country's government and of the international community is going in the wrong direction.

CAR is once again struggling through a period of profound instability, and its population needs help. Most humanitarian organizations, however, have either left the country or reduced their presence because of the general insecurity and a spate of targeted attacks on international NGOs.
