Yemen: Mother and child care
Last month we had at least 10 cases of children arriving dead on arrival, 4 out of the 10 were clearly as a result of traveling for several days," says Rachel Fletcher, coordinator of MSF’s Mother and Child Hospital. Pregnant women in Yemen are among the most vulnerable, traveling long and risky journeys while in labour to reach functional health facilities.
