Internal displacement in the Northern Triangle
of Central America
Hundreds of thousands of people in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras—a region known as the Northern Triangle—have been internally displaced as a consequence of widespread violence. Those people are particularly vulnerable, as they flee within their own countries in search of protection and safety.
