Yemen Health Services Nearing Collapse

Doctors Without Borders said on Tuesday health services in Yemen were "nearing collapse," with pregnant women dying for lack of transport and hospitals under fire from snipers.
Shortages of food, medicine and health workers are acute, said Thierry Goffeau, MSF's coordinator in Yemen's second city of Aden, AFP reported. "The population is faced with food shortages and the health system is in a state of collapse. I have never seen such a level of violence," he told a press conference in Paris following a 10-week mission to Yemen.
