UNFPA’s Ongoing Work in Yemen

The world’s worst humanitarian crisis has been unfolding in Yemen over the last four years. Almost half the country’s health facilities are closed. Medicine and midwives are scarce. And the lives of millions of pregnant women and their babies are in grave danger.

Even before the war, Yemen was one of the most dangerous places on earth for pregnant mothers. Now, poverty, hunger, and illness have greatly increased the risks not only to pregnant mothers and their babies but to all women and girls. 

But UNFPA is there, despite the conflict, ensuring women and girls receive life-saving reproductive health care.

Since women continue giving birth even during humanitarian disasters, UNFPA has assisted in over 32,000 safe child birth deliveries. UNFPA has also provided over one million dignity kits – kits containing menstrual pads, soap, underwear, a flashlight, toothpaste, a toothbrush, and a comb.
