From January to October 2016, national and international humanitarian partners have reached more than 5 million people with direct humanitarian assistance across Yemen's 22 governorates. This has been accomplished despite the access constraints that continue to be imposed by the parties to the conflict.
The cholera outbreak, declared in early October, is affecting 15 governorates; humanitarians are responding with health, water, and sanitation interventions to treat and contain the spread of the disease.
The 2016 Humanitarian Response Plan has received 57 per cent funding against the 1.6 billion appeal to date.
