Intense conflict since March 2015 has created a vast humanitarian crisis in Yemen. An estimated 18.8 million people need some form of humanitarian or protection assistance, including 10.3 million who are in acute need. High levels of food insecurity and malnutrition, large scale displacement, and declining health and social services are impacting the lives of millions. Collapsing social protection safety nets and a faltering economy require immediate action to avert a greater humanitarian catastrophe. National and international humanitarian partners aim to reach 12 million people with direct assistance in 2017.
