[Correspondence] Protecting public health in Yemen

We strongly support Abdulrahman A Al-Khateeb’s (Oct 15, p 1877) and The Lancet’s (Oct 15, p 1852) call for humanitarian assistance in Yemen.1,2 Since 2015, the conflict has rapidly reached the severity and scale shared only by Level 3 emergencies in Syria, Iraq, and South Sudan. To put this into perspective, only 47% of the UN’s 2016 response plan was funded, leaving a shortfall of US$868 million to cover the basic needs of 14 million people.3 The effect of war in Yemen is compounded by a high vulnerability to natural disasters, unchecked non-communicable diseases and, as of October, a cholera outbreak that will affect 8 million people who lack adequate water and sanitation.
