Disaster Ignored: A Crisis on Top of a Crisis in Central African Republic

Wednesday, December 4 at 8:00PM EDT

REGISTER AT: Eventbrite

For the past year, ongoing violence in the Central African Republic has worsened the civilian population’s already limited access to adequate health care. Since the takeover of the capital and overthrow of the government last March, the situation has continued to deteriorate. Rampant looting following the overthrow of the previous government and ongoing, pervasive lawlessness have contributed to a humanitarian crisis that has been largely ignored by the rest of the world. In a country that already had the second-lowest life expectancy in the world, at just 48 years, the people are now even more at risk. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has been delivering lifesaving medical care through a network of seven hospitals, two health centers, and 40 health posts, but many of the basic needs of the population remain unmet.

Join us on Wednesday, December 4, for an online discussion about the current situation in the Central African Republic. Panelists will include MSF Director of Operations Marie-Noelle Rodrigue, who will be joined by nurse Michelle Mays and Dr. Yolaine Civil, two US-based aid workers recently returned from assignments with MSF in the Central African Republic.


Yolaine Civil, MD, a Detroit-based pediatrician who recently returned from an MSF assignment in Bossangoa, Central African Republic, which has been the site of frequent and ongoing outbreaks of violence.

Michelle Mays, RN, who spent nearly three months as project coordinator in Boguila, Central African Republic, where MSF is operating a major health center and managing around 12 regional health posts.

Marie-Noelle Rodrigue, MSF’s Director of Operations, who has been heavily involved with setting up and managing programs in the Central […]
