Central African Republic Situation Report No. 14 (as of 3 May 2013)

Report
from UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs
Published on 03 May 2013

Highlights

  • Joint UN assessment missions to Ndele and Bambari find that the humanitarian situation is worsening in areas of health, protection, food security and education.
    Further assessments planned for Bria and Batalimo.

  • Food security has been identified as the priority sector for intervention. While seeds and food are available in markets, people lack financial resources and many households cannot afford basic food necessities and the seeds required to safeguard next season’s harvest.

  • The health cluster responds to the measles outbreak. Out of the 45 suspected measles cases in April, eight cases tested positive.
