Because of funding cuts, UNFPA – the leading provider of reproductive health services in the country – has had to scale back operations by 25 per cent so far this year. Of the 1.3 million women who will give birth in 2022, an estimated 195,000 will develop complications requiring life-saving medical assistance. © UNFPA Yemen
