Claire Manera, coordinator of Médecins Sans Frontières’s project in Yemen, is interviewed on the Cholera outbreak in Yemen. Yemen has been in a state of conflict since 2015. That conflict is causing a humanitarian crisis, especially since the intervention by Saudi Arabia later in that same year. The Cholera outbreak in Yemen is also a result of this conflict, and is exacerbated by the malnutrition of the population because of the Saudi blockade. This extremely treatable disease is discussed, and as are other steps that could be taken to help the people of Yemen.
