The ongoing crisis in the Central African Republic is worsening an already poor healthcare system in the country, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

The country has been mired in sectarian violence between the Muslim and Christian militias for the past two years.

Hundreds of thousands of people have been forced to flee their homes as a result of the conflict.

Daniel Johnson discussed the Central African Republic crisis with Dr Michel Yao, WHO representative for the country.
