Chad Humanitarian Emergency

Teenagers jump in the air.
UNFPA Chad/Ollivier Girard

Chad faces complex humanitarian challenges driven by internal and external conflict, population movements, food insecurity, health emergencies and natural disasters. The country is home to half a million internally displaced people and refugees, further straining resources in a country where millions are already food insecure. Moreover, violence in neighbouring countries has led to thousands of Chadians returning home. In times of crisis, women and children are more vulnerable to violence and are often unable to access life-saving sexual and reproductive health services and counseling. UNFPA and partners work to provide these services to those in need and to prevent and respond to gender-based violence.
