Overview

A year of intense conflict has created one of the world’s biggest humanitarian emergencies and risks pushing millions into famine. Since March 2015, Yemen has been gripped by a conflict involving different forces including the Houthis, the former president, and the Government of Yemen backed by a military coalition led by Saudi Arabia.

During an intense 12 months, markets have been bombed, water plants and businesses destroyed and most essential services have ground to a halt. Almost 600 health facilities have closed due to damage or a shortage of supplies or staff. This briefing shares the experiences of some of the 250 people interviewed by Oxfam in Yemen in February 2016 and shows how a year of intense conflict has created one of the world’s biggest humanitarian emergencies and risks pushing millions into famine.
