Central African Republic Humanitarian Emergency

The Central African Republic is facing a large-scale humanitarian crisis, characterised by protracted armed conflict which has left hundreds of thousands of people displaced. The effects of violence and insecurity coupled with poor access to basic services are undermining resilience and the number of people in need of humanitarian assistance continues to increase. Insecurity poses an obstacle to humanitarian access. Food assistance, access to healthcare, water, hygiene and sanitation services as well as protection services constitute key priorities. Together with partners, UNFPA is responding to the sexual and reproductive health (SRH) needs of conflict-affected women, girls and young people, including through capacity strengthening of humanitarian actors. UNFPA also leads the GBV sub-cluster in the Central African Republic.
