With an estimated 24 million people in need of some kind of assistance or protection, the crisis in Yemen remains the worst in the world driven by conflict, disease, economic collapse and the breakdown of public services.
After nearly seven years of continuous conflict, the humanitarian crisis in Yemen is the worst in the world, driven by conflict, economic collapse and the continuous breakdown of public institutions and services. The conflict crisis in Yemen has left 80 percent of the population in need of humanitarian assistance. ETC communication services support almost 2,600 responders to carry out their life-saving work effectively, safely and securely.
The ETC continues to support humanitarian operations on the ground through the provision of emergency coordination, security telecommunications and connectivity services to the response community. The ETC is liaising with World Health Organisation to upgrade/establish Ministry of Public Health and Population hotlines in Sana'a and Aden to act as COVID-19 information channels for the population.
