Doctors Without Borders update:

In August of last year, a Doctors Without Borders hospital in northern Yemen was hit in an airstrike. At least 19 people were killed. The organization then withdrew their staff from the area.

Now, 6 months later, Doctors Without Borders  is resuming their work in Haydan district hospital, in Sa’ada governorate.

“The restarting of our work in Haydan hospital, as well as its location, have been communicated to all parties to the conflict, and we expect them to respect its integrity. The people of Yemen need to be granted safe access to hospitals and other health services.”

The organization will assist with the emergency room, inpatient department, maternity unit, and referral system. They will also provide general logistical support to the hospital.
