Boguila is a town located in the Central African Republic prefecture of Ouham-Pendé.

According to Medecins Sans Frontieres,

Since the coup d’état in March 2013, Boguila has been unstable with increasing tensions and violence. In August 2013, a peak of violence provoked a massive population displacement in the area. In December 2013, Muslims fleeing violence from Nana Bakassa sought refuge with host families in Boguila before moving further north.[2]

Between January and October 2013, approximately 95,000 people in the areas surrounding the town received treatment for malaria.[3]

On April 11, 2014, "nearly 7000 people fled to the bush after fighting erupted in Boguila."[2] Chadian troops were escorting a convoy of "the last 540 Muslim residents of the northwestern town of Bossangoa to Goré, Chad," and were attacked by local militia as they passed through Boguila.[4] On April 28, 2014, Medecins Sans Frontieres announced it would suspend its activities in Boguila, after "rebels affiliated with the Séléka group" opened fire in a hospital, "killing at least 16 people."[5]
