Yemen Humanitarian Emergency

A woman holds her son.
UNFPA Yemen

The humanitarian crisis in Yemen remains the largest in the world, driven by years of conflict. Displacement, severe food insecurity, a water shortage crisis and now COVID-19 are only some of the challenges people are facing. Only half of Yemen’s health facilities remain functional, and reports of gender-based violence are rising. UNFPA is providing services, supplies and training for service providers on sexual and reproductive health and GBV. UNFPA also leads the gender-based violence sub-cluster in Yemen, a forum for coordination and collaboration with stakeholders working to prevent and respond to GBV.
