Over the last decade, the protracted conflicts in the region, with their associated recurring long-lasting disputes and feuds, and thus the resulting epidemics and chronic diseases, all of these have gradually destroyed infrastructures, services, and national living conditions. Not only are they the causes of human suffering, but also are the reasons for long-term displacement, migration, development delays, and diseases like AIDS, TB, Malaria and all types of virals. The character of these conflicts generates extreme fragility in basic services as well as in social, economic, and environmental stability. The countries’ capacity to deliver basic social services such as health care and education is paralyzed, and there are continual shortages of necessary medical equipment, medicine, and healthcare professionals. For example, the adult HIV prevalence rate in the Ivory Coast is at 4.7 percent; one of the highest in West Africa. There are an estimated 750,000 people are living with HIV in the country.
