In Mobaye, on the southern border with DR Congo, Cordaid staff coordinates and implements the results based financing support of 3 hospitals and 57 health centers of Basse Kotto préfecture. The project, financed by the World Bank, is the main source of support for many health facilities, as the state is too weak to deliver. But what if war forces 80% of the people to flee, including health staff?

Les groupes armés ont été responsables de sept attaques contre des civils en Octobre 2017, le chiffre le plus faible de la région frontalière Mbomou-Uélé depuis le début de 2017. Sur les sept attaques, quatre ont été commises par des groupes de l’Armée de Résistance du Seigneur (LRA) en République Centrafricaine. Deux autres attaques dans l’est de la RCA ont été liés à des tendances récentes de violence intercommunautaire et de compétition entre les groupes armés ex-Séléka et anti-balaka.

Since October 2016, inter-communal tensions fueled by armed groups have continuously increased. In the absence of an effective judicial system and of the delivery of State services, armed groups have continued perpetrating violent and destabilizing acts, of which the civilian population is the main victim. The targeting of ethnic and religious minorities, including women and children, has resurfaced. Killings and attacks against communities have been multiplying. Today, CAR is on the brink of sliding back into the same level of violence that led to the last conflict.
