1/31/18 MSF's Ghassan Abou Chaar updates the situation in Yemen

Ghassan Abou Chaar, Doctors Without Borders’ head of missions in Yemen, joins Scott to discuss the situation in Yemen. Chaar says that the cholera outbreak has improved as the dry season has limited the spread of the infection, but that cases of diarrhea remain prevalent. Chaar explains that while seasonal changes have helped, many of the awful conditions that led to the cholera outbreak in the first place remain in place. Chaar then updates the water situation in Yemen and the degree to which humanitarian aid is reaching the country. Finally Chaar explains why the work in Yemen only continues to get more difficult—and how people can contribute to the efforts of Doctors Without Broders.
