Chad is landlocked in central Africa, surrounded by mountains on three sides with a largely desert terrain. The State has had a turbulent political history since independence in 1960, and has been under the leadership of President, and former General, Idriss Déby since 1990. A wide range of human rights violations persist in Chad: the national standard of living is very low, with high levels of infant mortality and chronic malnutrition, while the recruitment of children for armed conflict is an ongoing problem.
