21 million people need humanitarian assistance. A 33 per cent increase since December 2014 according to the updated Humanitarian Needs Overview.
Casualties are increasing rapidly. Over 2,500 people have been killed and 11,000 injured in the conflict.
Increased humanitarian needs are being driven by conflict, impediments to humanitarian access, and severe restrictions on commercial imports.
An outbreak of dengue fever has been confirmed, with more than 3,000 cases nationally. This figure is likely to rise due to the collapsing water, sanitation and health systems.
Since March 2015, over 42,000 people have fled Yemen. This includes both Yemenis and third-country nationals.
Humanitarian workers continue to face security and access constraints as they seek to respond to the immense needs.
