Bosnia & Herzegovina

Since mid-2018, the route via Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) has become one of the most travelled mixed migration routes in the Western Balkans, with more than 102,460 registered arrivals to the country detected by authorities in BiH between January 2018 and September 2022.

Current situation

Refugees, migrants and asylum seekers continue to experience protection and health risks along the Balkan route and in BiH. DRC ensures protection assistance is available for those in need, in and out of reception facilities, and aims to minimize protection risks, including exposure to rights violations, through protection monitoring and GBV Case Management. Furthermore, DRC continues to provide protection assistance to people on the move with medical conditions and their families, including cases with mental health conditions.

Why we are there
