7. CARE’s capacity and experience
CARE works across 100 countries and 1,036 project and initiative teams around the world. CARE has SRHR programming in 63 countries and is currently responding to 9 large emergencies around the world. CARE works in settings that are at high risk of conflict and natural disasters (e.g. flood, earthquake and drought), which are increasing in frequency and intensity due, in part, to climate change. We work with different populations – displaced people (refugees, IDP) and local residents. We work in different settings – camps (formal and informal), settlements, and communities (rural and urban communities). Since 2012, CARE has supported SRHR programming in humanitarian settings in over 24 countries on three continents (Africa, Asia and Latin America) including: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Cameroun, Chad, Colombia, Cote d’Ivoire, Djibouti, DRC, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Iraq, Malawi, Mali, Myanmar, Nepal, Niger, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, South Sudan, Syria, Uganda, Venezuela and Yemen.
