Empowering Women working in the Health Sector in Yemen

Advocating for continuous support of critical life-saving basic services and inclusion of key vulnerable groups, while building community resilience.

Yemen is the largest humanitarian crisis in the world. In 2019, an estimated 24 million people, 80% of the population, require humanitarian assistance and protection, including 10 million who do not know where their next meal will come from.  The current crisis in Yemen has put a massive strain on the health system, jeopardizing the ability to meet the most basic health and nutrition needs of children and their families. The country has been struggling with a massive cholera outbreak since 2017, with over 10,000 suspected cases still reported on a weekly basis in the five most affected governorates. Nearly 20 million people are in need of health care and only half of the country's health facilities are fully functional.
