If you want a useful rundown of the crisis in Yemen that has been going on for almost 2 years, Médecins Sans Frontière has a helpful guide that has been updated through January.

Some points to know:

  • full-blown humanitarian emergency
  • disproportionate high level of civilian casualties due to airstrikes

MSF hospitals have been hit four times. Statistics and details on these facilities listed on above website.

MSF is also giving support for mental health across the country, on-the-job medical training, and has helped the blood bank in Aden resume blood donations. Additional information on the medical situation and work by MSF in each city in Yemen (in some places staff were evacuated) is available on the MSF website (same as above).
