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.

About 50% of the health facilities in Yemen that provide lifesaving healthcare are non-functional due to the conflict. The World Bank and IDA are working with UNICEF & the World Health Organization on the Emergency Health and Nutrition Project, which supports mobile clinics that provide healthcare for children under 5 and pregnant women, supports public hospitals, and provides essential medications. The project also works to improve the water and sanitation system in Yemen.
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.

Many health workers cannot afford to keep going, and many health facilities have had to shut down. Those medical staff who continue to work without pay are helping their communities out of a sense of duty, and holding out hope for change.

The World Health Organization says 242 people have been killed due to an outbreak of cholera that has engulfed war-torn Yemen, with about 23,500 other confirmed cases of the disease reported across the country in the past three weeks alone. The UN health agency said on Friday that a total of new 3,460 suspected cases of cholera and 20 deaths had been reported in the country in the past day alone. "The speed of the resurgence of this cholera epidemic is unprecedented," said Nevio Zagaria, the WHO country representative for Yemen. He said the number of suspected cholera cases could be far larger than those registered as humanitarian workers cannot access some parts of the country. Zagaria warned that the number of those infected could hit a quarter of a million people by the end of the year....
The Save the Children Fund delivered the warning on Tuesday in a report titled Struggling to Survive: Stories from Yemen’s Collapsing Health System, which is based on factual information and interviews with practitioners and locals. The report said at least 1,219 children had died as a direct result of warfare in the country, adding, however, that the “invisible causalities of Yemen’s war” are much higher. “An estimated 1,000 children are dying every week from preventable killers like diarrhea, malnutrition and respiratory tract infections,” Edward Santiago, the body’s Yemen country director, was cited in the report as saying. In August, Doctors Without Borders warned that the health system in the war-ridden nation was close to collapsing due to the Saudi military aggression
