Since 2016, South-West and North-West regions of Cameroon have experienced a social instability studded with violence, with a negative impact on the socio-economic context. The socio-political crisis gradually turned into insecurity and armed violence since early November 2017.
The escalation of tension and the multiplication of outbreaks of hostility between the non-state armed groups and security forces have affected the civilian population and forced the high number of households to leave their villages to more secure areas in other towns or in the bush.
The current conflict has significantly increased existing vulnerabilities in the two regions. Since the majority of the affected populations have been displaced and forced to live in the bush where they do not have access to basic health, hygiene, and sanitation services, it’s likely that the ongoing emergency has already had a serious impact on the nutritional status of the most vulnerable groups, mainly children under five and women.
