UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

Cameroon has been experiencing multiple humanitarian crises in the last 4 years, including the Lake Chad Basin crisis in the Far North, the CAR refugees crisis in the East and most recently the crisis in the South West and North Western regions.

The South-West and North-West crisis started at the end of 2016. Despite attempts at dialogue, protests from Anglophone labor organizations progressively turned into a political crisis with the central Government. This crisis took a new turn in 2017 when Anglophone leaders called for federalism or secession and secessionist armed groups have emerged. From this moment on, the political crisis morphed into an armed conflict between the secessionist groups and the Government of Cameroon.

The humanitarian country team in Cameroon launched an emergency response plan in May 2018. As a result of the armed violence in the South-West and North-West regions, 444,000 people remain internally displaced as of December 2018. As part of its emergency response in the Health sector, UNICEF is recruitment an emergency Health specialist.
