Video: Partnerships for children - UNICEF and ECHO tackling malnutrition and disease in Yemen

11 June 2017 - In Yemen, tackling malnutrition and disease is a race against time. Every 10 minutes, at least one child dies of preventable causes like malnutrition, diarrhoea and respiratory tract infections. Between 2015 and 2016, in partnership with EU Humanitarian Aid (ECHO), UNICEF deployed a multisector action to address malnutrition in the most conflict-affected communities. More than 232,000 children with Severe Acute Malnutrition were treated and over 115,000 pregnant and lactating women were reached with nutrition services.
