Yemen - Medicines Urgently Needed

By IHP, Dec 2 2016 01:50PM

IHP is urgently calling on its corporate partners to donate much-needed First Aid Kits and essential medicines to Yemen. “We urgently need emergency care to those caught in the Yemen crisis. The needs are always greatest for analgesics and antibiotics for adults and children,” says IHP’s Corporate Partnerships Manager, Andy Cain.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), “More than half of the health facilities in war-torn Yemen are closed or partially functioning.” They warned that the lack of adequate health services meant people were being deprived of life saving interventions and that 8.6 million people have inadequate access to medicine.

The conflict in Yemen started in March 2015. More than 14 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance.

To donate and to find out more contact Andy Cain in the Corporate Partnerships team: a.cain@ihpuk.org
