Emergency

Central African Republic

The Paediatric Centre of Banguì, capital of Central African Republic, started its clinical activities in March 2009. The Centre is open 24 hours/day, and offers free-of-charge primary and emergency healthcare to all children under the age of 14 years old, treating over 70 patients a day.

The Paediatric Centre is part of EMERGENCY's Regional Programme for Paediatrics and Cardiac Surgery: the Centre's facilities include a cardiological outpatients department for the screening of patients affected by cardiac diseases of surgical interest, that will be transferred to EMERGENCY's Salam Centre for Cardiac Surgery in Sudan.

Surgery at Bangui's "Complexe pédiatrique"

Following the coup d'etat that took place in late March 2013, an EMERGENCY team is working at the Complexe pédiatrique (the public paediatrics hospital) in Bangui. After having set two Operating Theatres up and running again, our doctors and nurses have started operating there, working on war- and non war-related surgery based on the most urgent needs of the local population.

Medical assistance at Bangui IDP camps

International agencies estimate nearly a million displaced people due to the war in the Central African Republic, out of a population of 4 million and six hundred thousand people.
 
Our team monitors IDP living and sanitary situation in the Chadian refugee site located nearby the airport and in the PK13 site, an area 13 kilometers from Bangui where many Internally displaced people from nearby villages have gathered, offering basic healthcare and referring to the Paediatric Centre or the Complexe pédiatrique patients who need secondary level treatments.
