D. R. Congo: general increase at the country level. Five provinces gathered up to 90% of the cases and deaths. These are the epidemic provinces of the Great Kasai, and the endemic provinces of South Kivu and Tanganyika. The Great Kasai region reported more than half of all the cases and deaths. The persistent outbreak is related to a lack of access to safe water, difficulties in case management (lack of medical supply), and a general lack of community interventions.

PROJECTED FOOD ASSISTANCE NEEDS FOR MARCH 2019
More than four years after the crisis broke out in December 2013, the situation in the Central African Republic (CAR) remains extremely worrying. Since May 2017, new violence between armed groups has forced thousands of people to flee, resulting in a quarter of the population either being internally displaced or living as a refugee in neighbouring countries. The European Union supports those most affected by providing basic items and services such as food, healthcare, emergency shelter, water and sanitation, and protection of civilians.
