WHAT WE DO IN THE CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC
Cordaid strengthens the health system by mainly using a results-based financing approach. We are improving the quantity and quality of healthcare services. Since 2015, Cordaid has spent 41,5 million euros on health programming in the CAR.
Access to justice
Together with our local partners, we help create an enabling environment where victims of violence feel empowered to rebuild their lives, restore their sense of dignity, and fully participate in their communities. Our Strategic Partnership programme provides a platform for local organisations and has been key in capacity-building initiatives.
We provide clean water, sanitation, shelter, food and protection to host communities and displaced people. We build and support schools and safe spaces for children to learn and play.
We improve food security and create economic opportunities for displaced people, women and young adults.
WHERE WE WORK IN THE CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC
In the Central African Republic, Cordaid works in seven prefectures. In Nana Mambere, Mbomou, Ouham Pende and Ouham in the northwest, Cordaid focuses on improving basic health services and providing humanitarian aid, including water, sanitation and hygiene, shelter, food security, and protection to displaced people as well as host communities. In addition, we build and support schools and safe spaces for children to learn and play.
In the southern prefectures of Mambere Kadei, Lobaye and Ombella Mpoko, we provide primary healthcare services and have programmes on advocacy and social cohesion and sexual and reproductive health care for youth. We also improve the livestock value chain, in partnership with the government and local partners.
