Conflict, health, and electricity: An empirical assessment of the electrification of healthcare facilities in Yemen (Al-Akori et al. 2023)

A. Al-akori, C. Cader, D. Ansari, P. Blechinger and W. Brahim

Abstract — While the effect of energy on conflict is well-studied, scholars have rarely investigated the impacts of conflict on electricity (setups) and healthcare. Prolonged violence has exacerbated Yemen's energy crisis — a dynamic which has also affected healthcare facilities. We construct and analyse a dataset of healthcare facilities, including their power mix and conflict situation. The study addresses both researchers of the energy-health-conflict nexus and Yemen analysts. We perform interviews, QGIS mapping, hierarchical clustering, and logistic regressions to review the situation, identify relevant patterns, and estimate the conflict's impact.
