UNFPA Response in Yemen Monthly Situation Report #8 – August 2018

August 2018
Author: UNFPA Yemen


Yemen remains the world’s largest humanitarian crisis. Some 22.2 million people - 75 per cent of the population - are in need of humanitarian assistance. Some 17.8 million people are food insecure. Conflict, protracted displacement, disease and deprivation continue to inflict suffering upon the country’s population. Disruption to commercial imports, inflation, lack of salary payments to civil servants and rising prices of basic commodities are further exacerbating people’s vulnerability.
