2017 Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan (YHRP)

The United Nations and humanitarian partners today launched an international appeal for US$2.1 billion to provide life-saving assistance to 12 million people in Yemen in 2017. This is the largest consolidated humanitarian appeal for Yemen ever launched.

An estimated 10.3 million people are acutely affected and need some form of immediate humanitarian assistance to save and sustain their lives including food, health and medical services, clean water & sanitation and protection. Nearly 3.3 million people – including 2.1 million children – are acutely malnourished while 2 million people remain internally displaced.

The 2017 Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan (YHRP) is tailored specifically to assist people facing acute needs in addition to a limited number of people at risk of slipping into acute-need status.
