Persecution of Christians has reached the highest levels since the Open Doors World Watch List began nearly 30 years ago.
More than 360 million Christians suffer high levels of persecution and discrimination for their faith. In the 2022 World Watch List top 50 alone, 312 million Christians face very high or extreme levels. That is one in 7 worldwide; 1 in 5 in Africa, 2 out of 5 in Asia, and 1 in 15 in Latin America.
