‘Most People Here Die in Silence’: Inside the Fight to Save Yeman’s Health System

October 14, 2016

(BBC) – This is the new reality of Yemen’s health system, or what is left of it. After two years of war, thousands of people are dying from easily treatable conditions as the system collapses around them. Drugs are disappearing from the market or skyrocketing in price. Mental health care is virtually non-existent. Vital hospital equipment is stuck at ports while medical convoys, ambulances, and entire hospitals are destroyed from the sky.
