Cote d'Ivoire

Côte d’Ivoire is a member of the African Union and used to be a beacon of Western African economic success. But since civil war broke out at the turn of the century, ongoing political instability has kept the nation on a constant brink of violence.

Poverty has struck more than 40% of households and infant mortality rates here are among the highest in the world.
