Crisis Update: Yemen
Thursday, May 28, 1:00 PM EDT
The humanitarian crisis in Yemen grows more catastrophic each day. Fighting and indiscriminate airstrikes have harmed civilians, medical facilities, and critical infrastructure, disabling the only international airport in the country. These attacks, along with an unwavering blockade, have crippled Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières's (MSF's) ability to access people who are in dire need of care, as it is nearly impossible to get supplies and aid workers into the country. Fuel is all but unavailable, making it increasingly difficult for Yemenis to seek medical care, or even access clean drinking water. Since fighting broke out, more than 1,500 people have been killed, and MSF has treated more than 1,600 wounded by the fighting and bombings.
Robert Blecher, deputy program director, Middle East and North Africa, for International Crisis Group.
Philippe Bolopion, United Nations and crisis advocacy director for Human Rights Watch.
Pablo Marco, Middle East operations manager for MSF, and recently returned from Sana'a.
Phil Zabriskie, editorial director for MSF-USA, will moderate the discussion.

JHU SAIS, Washington, DC - Register at http://www.jhsph.edu/departments/international-health/research/Conversation-on-Transition.html! As middle-income countries increasingly transition away from external donor assistance for health, the challenges of sustaining the gains achieved will be formidable. To help capture valuable lessons learned from recent transition processes, R4D is hosting a series of panels. This upcoming panel will discuss the rationale and strategy behind the Avahan transition in India, its execution, and results to date. Speakers and panelists include JHSPH's Associate Professor Sara Bennett from the Department of International Health.
