Emergency reproductive health care saves lives in Yemen

Across Yemen, from an estimated 6 million women of child bearing age, 144,000 women are likely to experience complicated deliveries risking their lives and that of their babies requiring access to emergency reproductive health services. Most women cannot afford the transportation cost or hospital charges. At Al Kuwait Hospital in Sana'a, UNFPA with support from the Kingdom of Kuwait is supporting the Hospital to provide  nearly 100 cesarean sections a month free of charge to save mother's lives and their babies.
