The outbreak of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in West Africa is unprecedented in its scale, severity, and complexity. More than 23,200 people have been infected by 15 February 2015, resulting in over 9,300 deaths. Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone are still affected by this outbreak, and are struggling to control the epidemic against a backdrop of extreme poverty, weak health systems and social customs that make breaking human-to-human transmission difficult.
This report covers the period: 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2014

23 TUÉS DANS DES ATTENTATS SUICIDES
Le 15 juin, deux attentats suicides simultanés devant le siège de la police et de l'académie de police dans la capitale N'Djamena ont tué au moins 23 personnes. Il n'y avait aucune revendication immédiate, mais les militants de Boko Haram ont dans le passé menacé d'attaquer le Tchad et les pays voisins en représailles de leur offensive contre le groupe armé. L'attaque est la première de son genre au Tchad. Jusqu'à présent, Boko Haram a ciblé des villages tchadiens sur les rives du lac Tchad.

What’s the Issue?
When crisis occurs, people’s lives change in an instant. As a result, death, injury, displacement, and the destruction of infrastructure and institutions impact entire communities.
Crises impact women, girls, boys and men of all ages differently.
As a result, their needs and interests differ, as do their resources, capacities and coping strategies. Women are often the first responders to a crisis, and they play a central role in the survival and resilience of families and communities.
