Primary Health Care International Medical Corps provides primary health care, maternal and child health care and nutrition services through 12 medical centres and 20 mobile clinics in Vakaga and Haute-kotto districts. The people living in these communities are amongst the worst affected by the recent fighting in CAR.
Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Around the town of Bria, in the north of CAR, International Medical Corps is constructing hundreds of latrines, wells and water pumps for people that have been forced from their homes by the conflict. By providing safe water and hygienic facilities, we are reducing the risk of people becoming ill from water related diseases. Several of the latrines have been built in local primary schools which have re-started classes, for the first time since the conflict began, and the children require sanitation facilities to safeguard their health.
Child Protection International Medical Corps provides training programmes for community leaders and Central Africans who work directly with children and young people. By focusing on education, this approach fosters a lasting force for children’s safety and well-being in this conflict-affected region.
Our projects focus on the protection of children and the reintegration of children affected by the conflict, particularly those who have been involved with armed groups.
