CAF-11/H/36880/R/5195 “Strengthening Primary Health Care services and HIV/AIDS sensitization to conflict affected populations in CAR” – USD 267,500 (Jan 2012)

Participation Organization: MERLIN - Medical Emergency Relief International


Programme Description

Continuing violence in CAR has resulted in wide-scale displacement and severe disruption in access to health services. Since 2008, Merlin has been provided emergency healthcare and nutrition for displaced persons, refugees and other conflict-affected populations in Nana Mambere, Lobaye and most recently in the South-East region of Mbomou, where communities affected by rebel attacks suffer from poor access to healthcare services due to insecurity.


In the CAR the infant mortality rate is 106 per 1000 live births and a 176 per 1000 live births for under-five mortality, ranking CAR 10th among countries with the highest under-five mortality rate worldwide.


Merlin aims to increase access to Primary Health Care services and information for prevention of HIV/AIDS to affected populations in the Mbomou Prefecture complementing existing programmes which includes training of health workers, provisions of health supplies, immunization services, Antenatal Care, preparedness and response to outbreak and basic rehabilitation.
