[Editorial] Yemen and cholera: a modern humanity test

Urgent warnings began in May as aid agencies called for an immediate response to the growing cholera outbreak in Yemen. By mid-July, over 330 000 cholera cases were reported, with 1700 deaths. Since 2015, a civil war has left 14·5 million people (half the country’s population) without access to clean water and sanitation. The UN has called it the “world’s worst cholera outbreak in the context of the world’s worst humanitarian crisis”. The war, unpaid worker salaries, a decimated health system, controversies around the undeployed cholera vaccine stockpile, and slow global funding efforts are all somehow to blame.
