Houthis-run Ministry of Public Health and Population and the Yemeni Society for Neurosurgery and Spine, on Wednesday, launched the third conference for neurosurgery and the spine.
The Minister of Health, Dr. Taha Al-Mutawakel said that Yemen is witnessing a record increase in cases of brain and nerve deformities, with the increasing bombing of civilian objects and populated areas by the coalition countries with their poisonous weapons.
The Minister of Health clarified that the coalition countries are still preventing the entry of diagnostic devices for neurosurgery, exacerbating the suffering of thousands of patients and the deterioration of the necessary medical services for them.
He noted that most of the magnetic resonance devices are almost stopped due to the coalition’s prevention of entering this type of medical device or any of its equipment.
He pointed out that the countries of the Saudi-led coalition insist on preventing the entry of endoscopes necessary for neurosurgery for the sixth year in a row.
