Yemen Humanitarian Emergency

A woman holds her son.

The crisis in Yemen remains the world's largest humanitarian emergency. More than five years of conflict and severe economic downturn have left millions of people internally displaced and acutely food insecure. Attacks against civilians continue to cause immense suffering, while malnutrition and inaccessibility of maternal health services pose grave risks to the health and lives of pregnant women and their babies. Displacement has heightened protection risks, including violence against women and girls and negative coping strategies such as early or forced marriage. UNFPA is providing sexual and reproductive health services, including training for midwives, protection services, and support for health facilities. UNFPA also leads the gender-based violence (GBV) sub-cluster in Yemen, a forum for coordination and collaboration with stakeholders working to prevent and respond to GBV in humanitarian settings.
