Yemeni chronicles
After five years of war, chronic shortages of supplies and staff have led to the collapse of Yemen’s health system.

The 2020 COVID-19 outbreak in Yemen came after diseases such as cholera and diphtheria had already reappeared in the country.

A recent upsurge in fighting has exacerbated the dire situation in Yemen. With huge numbers of people unable to access even basic healthcare, our activities in the country are among our most extensive worldwide.

Our teams in Yemen responded to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic that devastated parts of the country.
