Following the escalation of violence in many parts of the country, NGOs signatories, members of the INGO Coordination Committee (CCO) in the Central African Republic (CAR) call for an increased protection of civilians and an improved humanitarian access to allow the affected population access to vital aid.

COMMUNIQUE DE PRESSE
RCA : Le regain de violence contre les civils menace la fourniture de l’aide humanitaire essentielle et la survie des populations fragilisées par la crise.
More than 100 humanitarian agencies call for immediate and sustained access in Syria.
As the parties to the conflict in Syria resume talks to end a war that now enters its sixth horrific year, there is renewed hope for peace. For an end to the suffering of millions of the innocent.
Five years into a conflict that has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives, conditions confronting civilians in Syria continue to deteriorate, particularly for children and youth. Warring parties continue to violate UN Security Council resolutions and international humanitarian law by deliberately and wantonly attacking civilians and civilian infrastructure, including homes, markets, schools and hospitals leaving a deadly legacy of Unexploded Ordnance.
More than 120 humanitarian organizations and United Nations agencies issued a joint appeal today urging the world to raise their voices and call for an end to the Syria crisis and to the suffering endured by millions of civilians. The appeal also outlines a series of immediate, practical steps that can improve humanitarian access and the delivery of aid to those in need inside Syria.
Since 2013, a Neglected Tropical Diseases Control program based on mass drug administrations (MDAs) was launched in three provinces of Angola. One of the NTD programme objectives is to reduce the risk of infection and re-infection of soil-transmitted helminths and schistosomiasis amongst school children through a school based Water and Sanitation, Hygiene Education programme.
