Yemen Humanitarian Emergency

UNFPA Yemen

In Yemen, humanitarian needs remain high despite efforts to renew peace talks. The country is in the midst of a protracted political, humanitarian and developmental crisis. Violence against civilians and their assets is causing immense suffering. More than 24 million people, 80 per cent of the population, require assistance, including 4.3 million internally displaced people. Women and children make up 76 per cent of those displaced and are paying the heaviest price. There are an estimated 6 million women and girls of childbearing age who need support. Food shortages have left an estimated over 1 million pregnant women malnourished, and threaten the lives of 144,000 women who are likely to develop complications during childbirth. UNFPA leads the gender-based violence sub-cluster and the UN Rapid Response Mechanism providing immediate emergency relief to new displaced persons.
