Meet a female doctor breaking stereotypes in Yemen

Ahead of #InternationalWomensDay, meet Dr. Bushra, an IRC Reproductive Health Officer and an overall fearless leader defying the odds in Yemen. “Being a woman is not just to be strong and stand up for myself, but to stand up for everybody else who needs me.”

Dr. Bushra moved away from her family home to a rural area of Yemen where she now manages eight IRC, @EU Civil Protection & Humanitarian Aid funded mobile medical units. Her teams provide care to pregnant women and babies in some of the toughest-to-reach parts of Yemen where they wouldn’t otherwise have access to healthcare—including during the pandemic.

At the IRC, we know that crises of any kind impact women and girls differently—but women like Dr. Bushra are working every day to ensure that women and children living in the world’s worst humanitarian crisis aren’t left without care.
