Georgia

Georgia has had a turbulent history since gaining independence in 1991. Separatist movements in the regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia provoked the internal displacement of nearly 300,000 people. This and the dramatic collapse of Georgia's economy after the dissolution of the Soviet Union led to widespread unemployment, civil unrest, and significant increases in maternal and infant mortality as people struggled to survive.
