Yemen's Ministry of Public Health and Population on Sunday night declared a public health emergency in the capital Sanaa as a result of the spreading cholera epidemic, which has killed 115 people so far since April 27. The ministry also sent an urgent call to all international and local health organizations to help address the worsening situation, in which the ministry said that the situation "is threatening with an unprecedented health and humanitarian disaster." At a press conference in Sanaa, the International Committee of the Red Cross Operations Director said more than 8,500 suspected cholera cases have been reported in 14 governorates of Yemen from April 27 to May 13.

The International Committee of the Red Cross has raised an alarm over Yemen’s challenges in the health sector. Peter Maurer, the charity’s president, said the overall situation in Yemen was “very dire, and very catastrophic” in terms of health. The two-year war has resulted in the world's worst-ever cholera epidemic, and hospitals are unable to keep up. According to the UN, nearly two million Yemeni children are acutely malnourished.

The United Nations health agency says nearly 2000 people have died of cholera outbreak in the war-torn Yemen. World Health Organization noted in its statement released on Saturday that the epidemic was increasing at an average of 5-thousand new cases a day. According to the UN body, the two provinces of Hajjah and Hudaydah are the worst hit areas. The statement added that nearly 420-thousand suspected cases of cholera have been reported since late April. Earlier, WHO, the UN Children’s Fund and the World Food Program said malnourishment of 80 percent of Yemeni children was making them vulnerable to the cholera epidemic. Yemen has been blockaded by Saudi Arabia since Riyadh started a war against its neighbor in 2015. Watch Live: http://www.presstv.com/live.html Twitter: http:...
In areas where MSF teams are working, health structures have been hit and damaged or destroyed by air strikes. As Natalie, MSF emergency coordinator, explains, these attacks severely limit the capacity of Yemeni healthcare system to respond to the medical needs.
With one of the world's highest maternal mortality rates, Yemen faces extreme hurdles when it comes to providing adequate healthcare to its women. Seven Yemeni women a day die of complications from pregnancy or childbirth -- leaving seven families in danger of collapse in the absence of a mother -- and nearly all of the deaths are preventable.
Humanitarian agencies are warning of the devastating consequences the war is having on Yemen's health system, which is now close to collapse. Hospitals and clinics across the country have been destroyed during the civil war between pro-government forces and Houthi rebels.

The increasing number of cholera cases in Yemen has put the country's poor health sector under extra pressure. Medical centers say they’ve run out of material and cannot admit more patients due to lack of empty beds.

The Head of UNICEF health programme in Yemen interview in Al Jazeera English comments on the challenges in containing cholera outbreak. She said in the 2 and half year "since the conflict began in Yemen" most of Yemen public services assistants have been collapsing and the worst of these is water and sanitation collapse in the country that depends heavily on sanitation workers. Water is the biggest source of spread of the disease and what we need now in Yemen is how to protect yourself from giving the disease for simple things like washing hands, storing water properly, treating water by chlorination and to take suspected people by cholera to the hospitals to give the patients Oral Rehydration Solutions as possible, she said. UNICEF, WHO, health partners and partners are starving a massive...

Many hospitals in Yemen were destroyed due to the conflict. Some doctors and nurses had no choice but to use caves as healthcare centers to provide healthcare to the people in Sa'ada city. #YemenChildren #Yemen
@loonydepartment - Talking about the massive difference between the support I'm lucky to get here (Mersey Care services), compared to the support I tried to get when I lived in Yemen years ago. Culture vs Mental Health awareness, and in Yemen they think you're possessed, the poor miss out on every aspect of treatment. #MerseyCare #MentalHealth #Awareness
