SUMMARY
Alarming conditions

Burundians live in some of the worst conditions in the world. Every province in the country, except one, endured sporadic fighting, looting or armed banditry in 2003.

While political progress has recently been made by a ceasefire agreement with three of the four rebel groups, the humanitarian situation deteriorated in 2003.

During most of the year, about 100,000 people were forced to flee their homes monthly, often at a moment's notice, when fighting plunged their communities into fear.
