Yemen | The second-hand consequences of conflict

Far from the bullets and bombs on the frontlines of Yemen, in places like Ibb which are relatively calm, MSF teams witness the second-hand implications of the ongoing war.

The collapse of the economy and the health infrastructure has meant that many people are unable to afford transportation to the few and far-between hospitals still functioning in the country. Some delay their travel until their symptoms are more severe, or while they gather the money needed. 

It's likely that many people never make it to medical centres.

Our teams believe that what they see may just be the tip of the iceberg.
