The situation in Yemen remains catastrophic. A record 22.2 million people need humanitarian assistance or protection – including 8.4 million people who are severely food insecure. People’s lives have continued unraveling.

Conflict has escalated significantly since November 2017, driving an estimated 100,000 people from their homes. More people are going hungry, and famine remains a real threat. Although cholera cases are in decline, the disease is not yet beaten and is likely to rebound in the upcoming rainy season. In addition, a diphtheria outbreak – the first since 1982 – has emerged, killing 73 people to date.
