To the conflict that already threatens millions of children in Yemen, a dangerous outbreak of cholera is now linked. Health services, halved by the conflict, are on the verge of collapse and do not provide enough to meet the growing number of people suffering from this disease.
So far there have been 330.000 cases suspected of cholera. Yemen is facing a new health crisis that has left more than 1.700 deaths. Without a proper water and sanitation system, cholera is transmitted at high speed and without health centers or economic resources, it is not possible to face a health emergency like this.
UNICEF is working to deal with this outbreak of cholera, sending medical supplies and drinking water.
- Provide drinking water and sanitation to the population.
- Prevent new cholera infections among minors and the Yemeni population.
- Promote hygienic practices among the population.
