YEMEN/2017/Yemeni chronicles


After more than two years of conflict, the medical and humanitarian situation in Yemen is extremely dire and only seems likely to further deteriorate with an estimated 14.8 million people lacking access to basic healthcare in Yemen.

More than half of the health facilities are non-operational because of destructions, lack of staffs and medicine. In addition, fuel price, more than 40% higher than before the crisis makes any movement to the remaining facilities almost unaffordable for most households and patients often reach health centres at the last minute.

The non-payment of MoH staff salaries since October 2016, as well as the salaries of most civil servants since August 2016, is another aggravating factor, affecting directly an estimated 1,25M civils servants and their families.

The lack of agreement between the warring parties could lead to an escalation of the conflict with persistent rumours of an offensive on Hodeidah, the major port of the Northern part of the country. Despite current import limitations, Hodeidah remains a key entry point for goods and humanitarian supply.
