The humanitarian crisis in the Central African Republic is driven by protracted armed conflict, which has displaced hundreds of thousands of people. Access to basic services, including food, health care, water, hygiene and sanitation as well as protection services, is severely constrained. Together with partners, UNFPA is responding to the sexual and reproductive health needs of conflict-affected women, girls and young people, including through initiatives to strengthen the capacity of other humanitarian actors in this area. UNFPA also leads the GBV sub-cluster in the Central African Republic.
