Yemen Humanitarian Emergency

UNFPA Yemen

Yemen was already facing a humanitarian crisis when violence intensified in March 2015. The country has been devastated - more than 80 percent of the population is in need, beyond the capacity of the humanitarian community to respond. Amidst the challenges, UNFPA and its partners continue to focus efforts on sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services and the prevention and response to gender based violence (GBV).
