Yemen: Suspected cholera cases soar | UNICEF
Description: Health workers are racing against time to save children from the unprecedented spread of cholera in Yemen. In just over one month, close to 70,000 cholera cases have been reported with nearly 600 fatalities. The number of suspected cases is expected to reach 130,000 within the next two weeks. The spread of the disease is turning an already dire situation for children into a disaster. Since the start of the outbreak we’ve been working with partners to reach children and families. Our teams on the ground have provided safe water to over 1 million people and delivered over 40 tonnes of life-saving medical equipment – including medicine, oral rehydration salts, intravenous fluids and diarrhoea disease kits. We must act now to save children’s lives.

Free Care for Hepatitis C in Cambodia
Description: "The majority of our patients are pretty poor, so this is a hardship for them to have to come all the way to Phnom Pehn to get treated for hepatitis C, but they are doing it," said Dr. Theresa Chan. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has been delivering treatment to patients with hepatitis C in Phnom Penh since October 2016. Due to the overwhelming needs, and this being the only free screening and treatment available in the city, MSF has been prioritizing those with the greatest risk of developing severe and fatal forms of the disease. Many more people need these drugs, and the exorbitant price charged for them must be addressed.

Sudan: Obstruction of Aid Denies Women Lifesaving Health Care
Description: Most women and girls in the rebel-held Nuba Mountains of Sudan lack access to reproductive health care, including emergency obstetric care. Their plight is one of the little known yet far-reaching effects of years of obstruction of aid to the area by the Sudanese government and armed opposition. Women and girls cannot get contraception and have little access to health care if they face complications during pregnancy and childbirth. The parties to the six-year-long conflict, the Sudanese government and the rebel Sudan People’s Liberation Army-North (SPLA-North), have both obstructed impartial humanitarian aid.
