2023 Safeguarding Health in Conflict Coalition (SHCC) Factsheet

Based on Insecurity Insight data, the SHCC identified 47 incidents of violence against or obstruction of health care in Yemen in 2023, an increase from 25 in 2022. In these incidents, seven health workers were killed and health facilities were occupied and forcibly entered or damaged by drone-delivered explosive weapons, and ambulances damaged by IEDs in 2023. This is a change from 2022 when health facilities were typically damaged by plane-delivered explosives and shelling. The factsheet is available in English.
