Insecurity Insight monitors attacks on health care in CAR.

Based on Insecurity Insight data, the CAR chapter of the 2023 Safeguarding Health in Conflict Coalition report identified at least 41 incidents of violence against or obstruction of health care in CAR in 2023, compared to 32 in 2022. At least five health workers were kidnapped. Violence at or towards mobile health clinics was the predominant form of violence against health care in CAR in 2023 with nearly two-thirds of cases recorded in the first six months of 2023 coinciding with a CPC rebel offensive against government forces. The actual number of incidents is likely higher due to under-reporting. The full chapter is accessible here.
