Four and a half million people live in Central African Republic-and just 2,916 medical personnel ( and only about 5 doctors outside of the capital of Bangui.) One in ten babies dies at birth. Of those who survive, one in five will die before their fifth birthday.
Twice as many women die in pregnancy than a decade ago and in districts such as Nana Gribizi – an area the size of Wales – there are just two midwives. They don't even have the minimum level of healthcare any more.
