The humanitarian crisis in Yemen remains the worst in the world. Nearly four years of conflict has led to the collapse of the economy and social services. Millions of Yemenis are hungrier, sicker and more vulnerable than a year ago.

In 2018, UNFPA significantly expanded both its coverage and the size of its humanitarian operations in Yemen. This resulted in an increase of 77 per cent in the number of health facilities supported by UNFPA (from 133 health facilities in 2017 to 235 in 2018), while the provision of protection services more than quadrupled.

UNFPA aims to reach 5.5 million people with essential and life-saving services in 2019. The funding requirement for this is $110.5 million.
