Report: Maternity care in Mocha, Yemen

04 Mar 19

Since August 2018, MSF teams have been working in Mocha, Taiz governorate, Yemen, where they opened a surgical field hospital to provide emergency surgical care to war wounded from the Hodeidah and Taiz frontlines.

The MSF field hospital in Mocha remains the only health facility performing emergency surgery, like C-sections, in the area on the local population. Teams are treating pregnant women with complicated deliveries that require these urgent surgeries.

Between August 2018 and January 2019, MSF’s teams performed 122 caesareans.
