Across Africa, UNHCR works to ensure that the displaced have access to services such as education and health care. The Agency creates safe school environments, improves camp security and reduces the risks of sexual and gender-based violence. UNHCR works in four regions in Africa: Central Africa and the Great Lakes, East and Horn of Africa, Southern Africa, and West Africa.
The Africa documents linkprovides planning and reporting materials. The Media Centre has videos, news, press releases, briefing notes, and stories of UNHCR’s work in the region.
