Since the beginning of the year, over 14,000 protection incidents have been recorded, a seven-fold increase in comparison to 2013. At least $24 million is needed to cover the priority humanitarian needs.
Antananarivo, the capital and largest city, has recorded two cases and one death. There is now a risk of a rapid spread of the disease due to the city’s high population density and its weak healthcare system.
Early in 2014, an estimated 150,000 people fled violence in CAR to Chad. A quarter of the population - 2.6 million people - are living in food insecurity and over 63,000 children are malnourished.
This represents an increase from the 39 per cent recorded for 2012. Children constituted 90 per cent of all civilian casualties in DR Congo, 82 per cent in Yemen, and 75 per cent in South Sudan.
