Amid shifting frontlines, thousands of people were killed, wounded or displaced as armed groups fought to take control of territory. Two MSF workers paid the ultimate price and lost their lives while doing their jobs.

Humanitarian needs are immense: in late 2016, 2.3 million people, or about half of the population, were depending on humanitarian aid to survive. According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA), one in five CAR citizens are still displaced inside or outside national borders.

Limited access to vaccination and sanitation means that easily preventable diseases continue to take a toll. Malaria is endemic and the leading cause of death among children under five years of age. Mental health needs are also great, with people traumatised by violence and permanent insecurity. The health system is barely functioning, due to a severe shortage of skilled health workers and medical supplies. This basic lack of access to healthcare has serious repercussions for, among others, people living with HIV (3.7 per cent of the adult population): CAR has one of the lowest antiretroviral coverage rates in the world.

More information about Central African Republic is available on the Central African Republic Page and from other Department of State publications and other sources listed at the end of this fact sheet.

The United States established diplomatic relations with the Central African Republic (CAR) in 1960, following its independence from France. CAR is one of the world’s least developed nations, and has experienced several periods of political instability since independence. It is landlocked and located in a volatile and impoverished region with a long history of development, governance, and human rights problems.

As a result of insecurity and violence, the United States has suspended embassy operations three times in the past twenty years, most recently in December 2012 due to insecurity and the eventual overthrow of the CAR government by the Seleka armed group. The embassy resumed normal operations in September 2014 and remains open today. U.S. Agency for International Development programs in CAR are managed from the U.S. Embassy in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo.
