Yemeni chronicles
Indiscriminate bombings and chronic shortages of supplies and staff have led to the closure of more than half of Yemen's health facilities.

Recent outbreaks of diseases such as cholera and diphtheria and an upsurge in fighting have exacerbated the already dire humanitarian situation in Yemen.

More than three million people have been displaced since the war started in 2015.

With an estimated 20 million in need of humanitarian assistance, our activities in Yemen are among our most extensive worldwide. In 2018, we worked in 13 hospitals and health centres across the country and provided support to more than 20 health facilities across 12 governorates.
