Yemen’s health system is “on the brink of collapse”: WHO

Yemen’s entire health system is “on the brink of collapse” according to the World Health Organization (WHO), which is deploying medical teams to help thousands of newly displaced civilians.

WHO Spokesperson in the country, Tarik Jašarević, said that after nearly two years of escalating conflict between government forces and Houthi rebels, 17 per cent of Yemen’s health facilities are completely non-functional.
