Three children have died of Cholera in Hajjah governorate this week, director of the Health Office in Hajjah Ayman Madhkoor said, pointing out that nine others were also inflicted with the epidemic.
According to UNICEF, a cholera outbreak across Yemen is the last thing the conflict-ridden country needed, but it was also expected given the collapse of the health system.
More than 600 health facilities are not functioning, and many of those that are functioning are either poorly staffed or are running on minimum operating capacity.
UNICEF and its partners are continuing their support to health facilities and at the community level in the midst of the ongoing conflict and instability.
