Over the past year, Bangui has changed beyond recognition. Entire neighbourhoods have been looted and emptied. More than 61,000 people who once had homes in the capital now live in 34 spontaneous sites across the city. Most of the city’s Muslim population has left. Communities have gathered, based on their faith, around churches or the central Mosque. Insecurity and fear prevent them from returning home.
Reaching thousands of people with life-saving aid in very remote and rural areas of the Central African Republic comes with a set of challenges unique to a country that ranks third to last on a list of human development indicators. In other words, out of 187 countries measured each year on how developed they are, CAR is number 185. By comparison, the United States occupies number five on the list, just behind Norway, Australia, Switzerland and the Netherlands.

The report covers the following key questions. What is the background of the conflict parties Seleka and anti-balaka, and how are they structured? Which strategic interests do they prioritise, or ignore? What do they want to achieve?

Dear Palais journalists
Following requests from several journalists, please find below my notes on the WHO preparedness missions to support countries get prepared to respond to any Ebola outbreak.
