Some of the health interventions implemented that contributed to alleviating the suffering of patients

Yemen has been experiencing the worst humanitarian crisis in the world for nine years as a result of the aggression and blockade, which has greatly affected the health care infrastructure and threatens the lives of millions of Yemenis.

However, SCMCHA has worked with WHO to implement interventions that maintain life-saving health services in the country.

Main interventions:

1. Supporting 12 health facilities in a number of Yemeni governorates to provide basic health care services to more than 2 million people

2. Protecting approximately 2.7 million Yemenis from disease outbreaks through: (strengthening epidemiological monitoring – providing life-saving treatment – strengthening emergency care and referral systems from primary care facilities to hospitals)

3. Support the Hajjah Trauma Center with medical supplies, oxygen and fuel to improve its ability to provide life-saving treatment

4. Covering the gap in dialysis machines in the dialysis center at the Republican Hospital in Saada to improve access to medical care for patients with chronic kidney failure.

Despite the great humanitarian suffering that Yemen is endorsing, efforts made to maintain life-saving health services in Yemen play a vital role in saving lives and alleviating the suffering of the Yemeni population.
