COVID-19 is a concern for children's health in humanitarian settings because their need for healthcare is hindered by the ongoing attention on the response to COVID-19 which could have a devastating impact on those who need it most.
CAR: End of emergency intervention in Kouango
After three months of activity almost 1,500 consultations were provided (including 362 hospitalised patients) .
The Central African Republic (CAR) Emergency Response Team (Eureca) is designed for short interventions and, athough humanitarian situation remains very concerning in Kouango, basic indicators are now under the threshold of an emergency response such as the one provided by Eureca.
Nonetheless, both the emergency team and the regular projects near the area remain vigilant in case a further intervention is needed.
