CAR refugees and Chadian locals have access to health clinics, but not medication

By Laura Angela Bagnetto

The Chadian government, working with the United Nations and various aid agencies, are trying to provide healthcare to the Central African Republic refugees, returnees, and the local population in southern Chad. Typical ailments include malaria, flu, and diarrhea. Health care workers are available for everyone, but medication is in scarce supply.

RFI's Laura Angela Bagnetto looks at how healthcare--or lack of thereof-- is a problem in the eight refugee camps dotting the border of Chad:
