YEMEN

COMPLEX EMERGENCY RESPONSE

As Yemen moves into the fifth year of ongoing conflict and continues its standing as one of the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, those displaced are some of the country’s most vulnerable people. According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, “a higher percentage of people face death, hunger and disease [in Yemen] than in any other country”. In 2019, 80% of the country’s population will require some form of humanitarian assistance, and a staggering 14 million people are in acute humanitarian need.

Across Yemen, deaths caused by cholera have skyrocketed. There are 3.34 million internally displaced people around the country, living in host communities and collective living sites. 83% of the collective sites have no health services, 39% report water deficits and 43% have no toilets. These conditions have led to more than 1.9 million suspected cases of cholera, and more than 3,500 resulting deaths since the beginning of the outbreak in 2017. New suspected cholera cases emerge every day, with almost 50,000 suspected cases of the waterborne disease in August 2019 alone.
