Yemen: Deteriorating Humanitarian Emergency Situation Report No. 11 (as of 10 June 2015) [EN/AR]

Report
from UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs
Published on 10 Jun 2015

Highlights

  • 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.
