UNICEF Report Discusses Challenges To Maternal, Child Health In Yemen

UNICEF: Yemen: Parenting in a War Zone
This report discusses the challenges pregnant women face in Yemen, noting, “Today, Yemen’s brutal conflict continues to rob children of their right to life and, for the survivors, to the best health care possible. This includes prenatal and postnatal care for their mothers … In a country profoundly affected by the humanitarian crisis, delivery of routine primary health care services has also been overshadowed by the urgency of responding to the cholera epidemic and starvation. This leaves pregnant women and newborns with limited access to a broader range of maternal and child health services, including antenatal and emergency obstetric and neonatal care…” (June 2019).
