In 2010, in its combined initial to third periodic reports to the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women, Côte d’Ivoire stated:
Acts of discrimination occurring as a result of social and political crises
73. In 2007, the Ministry of the Family, Women and Social Affairs, in cooperation with UNFPA [United Nations Population Fund], carried out a study on gender-based violence in the district of Abidjan, where most persons displaced by war were concentrated. The study revealed that 21.35 per cent of respondents, consisting mainly of women, were the victims of sexual violence.
Situation of displaced, migrant or refugee women
547. The military and political crisis has displaced large numbers of people from the Centre North-West region to the government-controlled area. Displaced persons remain vulnerable economically and in terms of their health. The inadequate living conditions of displaced persons have knock-on effects on their health.
548. The war has led to numerous acts of sexual violence, psychological trauma and lasting physical injuries. It has proved difficult to identify all the new health-care requirements arising from the crisis in the context of efforts to meet needs such as the provision of psychological assistance.
