The Impact of Conflict on Women and Girls in West and Central Africa and the UNICEF response

The West and Central Africa region has been racked by conflict over the past decade. Several countries - Côte d'Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Liberia and Sierra Leone -  are still embroiled in, or emerging from, long-term warfare. Women and girls in these countries are most vulnerable to gender-based violence and need special protection measures. This first-of-its-kind study by UNICEF on the situation of war-affected girls and women in the region highlights innovative programmes being implemented with partners to address the impact of conflict, and recommends how UNICEF can more proactively champion the rights of girls - particularly adolescent girls.
