UNICEF, WHO and World Bank’s efforts to restore Yemen’s health care system
Voice Actor Andy Taylor narrates this video illustrating the efforts of the World Bank’s International Development Association, UNICEF and the World Health Organization. Together, they support Yemen’s healthcare system through the Emergency Health and Nutrition Project.
Yemen’s living conditions continue to worsen
With nearly 3 years of escalating conflict in Yemen, the living conditions are getting worse every day.
Many hospitals are closed. If anyone in my family gets sick, we will have to travel a long distance to reach the nearest hospital.
I am poor. I can’t afford three meals a day for my children.
My husband lost his job. My two-year-old daughter is severely malnourished. She gets sick easily. We have taken her to the hospital twice.
We don’t have clean water to drink. My son got cholera last year. He died while we were trying to take him to the hospital.
Due to the increasing needs in Yemen, the World Bank’s International Development Association, UNICEF and the World Health Organization have partnered to support Yemen’s healthcare system through the Emergency Health and Nutrition Project.
The project supports 2,000 health facilities and hospitals with operational costs, fuel, water and supplies of essential medicines. And as more than 11 million people in the country are in need of access to clean water, the project is supporting Yemen’s water and sanitation system to improve people’s access to clean water.
And in 2018, the needs are still growing. UNICEF, WHO and the World Bank will continue supporting Yemen through the project to improve access to health care services and clean water.
