Cancer patients in Yemen struggle to survive as options diminish

Even before the war, many Yemenis could not afford treatment, but now it has become nearly impossible as one specialised cancer treatment facility, that does not even have the means to provide chemotherapy, may soon shut down.

The World Health Organization says thousands of terminally ill cancer patients in Yemen are struggling to get basic palliative care and medicines.

But the possible closure of one cancer treatment centre could make matters worse.
