The protection and humanitarian crisis in the Central African Republic has never been so dire as a direct result of the upsurge in violence and armed conflict in several regions of the country. The number of people forced to flee their homes and living in fear has never been so high since 2014, now over 720,000 people; widespread human rights abuses and violations of international humanitarian law continue unabated.
The operating environment is increasingly dangerous for the population and aid workers. Nonetheless, the humanitarian community has continued to support affected civilians despite the increase in attacks and this year, it has been able to provide multisectoral assistance and services to 1.2 million people every month.
