UNFPA Response in Yemen Monthly Situation Report #1 – January 2019

Publication Date: January 2019
Author: UNFPA Yemen


Conflict, protracted displacement, disease and deprivation continues to inflict suffering on the country’s population as the crisis in Yemen enters another year.

Disruption to commercial imports, inflation, lack of salary payments to civil servants and rising prices of basic commodities are exacerbating people’s vulnerability. Only half of health facilities are fully functioning. Needs have intensified across all sectors.

Millions of Yemenis are hungrier, sicker and more vulnerable now than they were a year ago.
