Measles outbreak in Yemen
The Yemeni health system is in a state of near-collapse: the population has very limited access to health facilities, either because they are damaged or not fully functioning. The direct consequences are the recent resurgence of outbreaks of preventable diseases such as cholera, diphtheria and measles. Measles is a highly contagious viral disease and one of the leading causes of death among young children. In 2018, MSF treated 1787 people for measles in Yemen.
