Key Messages

  • Escalated fighting in Taizz Governorate has destroyed critical civilian infrastructure and severely restricted access to basic services.

  • The entire health system across the governorate has nearly collapsed due to violence and insecurity, lack of fuel to power health facilities and water plants, and lack of medicines and supplies to treat patients.

  • Parties to the conflict continue to disregard international humanitarian law as civilians endure continued conflict.

  • The United Nations and partners call for predictable, safe and unimpeded passage and access to people in need of life-saving humanitarian assistance.
