Millions of Yemenis in desperate health situation, warns MSF

 

The international medical charity Doctors Without Borders has warned that millions of Yemenis face a "desperate" health situation on top of the ravages of war as Saudi Arabia continues its military aggression against its impoverished neighbor.

Doctors Without Borders, known by the French acronym MSF (Medecins Sans Frontieres), warned on Thursday that thirty months of war have had a devastating effect on the lives of civilians, including a large number of children.  

"Thirty months of war, high prices for consumer goods and unemployment have had a massive impact on people," MSF said, adding that a "great number of children" suffered from malnutrition.

Meanwhile, GhassanAbouChaar, head of the MSF mission in Yemen, said in a statement that "millions of Yemenis who cannot access primary health care (are in a) desperate situation."
