France is concerned by how quickly the cholera epidemic is spreading in certain regions of Yemen.

This epidemic is taking place in the context of a severe deterioration in the health situation; preventing the spread of the disease to the rest of the country requires decisive action to put an end to it as swiftly as possible. France will make €2 million available to support projects to meet the most urgent needs of the populations, notably in the health sector.

Finding a political solution in Yemen is more urgent than ever; it is the only way to resolve this conflict in order to put an end to the suffering of the Yemeni people.
