Médecins Sans Frontières: Lack of care kills mothers and children in Yemen

Cholera outbreak spreading like wildfire in Yemen

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) said that mothers and children in Yemen are dying from lack of access to medical care.

 

This came in a report published by the International Organization Wednesday, on its website, and viewed by “Anatolia”.

 

According to the report, many pregnant mothers with complications during childbirth and sick children can not receive medical care in Yemen, and that the consequences are often fatal

 

“After four years of conflict, the HOUTHIS  caused the actual collapse of the country’s public health system, which can not meet the needs of the 28 million people,” he said.

 

The organization said it had identified the deaths of 36 and 1529 children 1018 among them are new babies, in the hospital “Alhoban” in the province of Taiz (Southwest) and affiliated to the hospital, “Abbas,” supported by the organization in the province of Hajj in the  (north-west) between 2016 and 2018.

 

The report linked a large number of  deaths to several factors, mostly as a result of the continuation of the war, including the lack of sanitation, the difficulties people face in accessing these facilities, their inability to afford  other alternatives

 

He said many people had to cross the front lines, pass through forbidden areas, or negotiate their way through various checkpoints to reach a hospital that was still operating.

 

 

MSF  called on international relief organizations to increase their humanitarian response, increase the number of experienced staff sent to areas where the needs are huge, and ensure timely supervision and quality of assistance.
