CERF-funded Project


Provision of essential and lifesaving health services for vulnerable population (20-UF-WHO-032)

Project overview

The project will support Minimum Services Packages (MSP), Therapeutic Feeding Center(TFC) and Trauma care in targeted health facilities. The support to the MSP will focus on 21 health facilities located in Lahji, Ibb and Al Dhale governorates. This intervention will aim to providing essential medical services to over 274,000 people. Essential medical services are those defined as per first line response under the Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan (YHRP): primary care including ante-natal and post-natal care, lifesaving services requiring surgical consultations and treatment of severely acute malnourished children under five. The CERF allocation will target 90 therapeutic feeding centres directly supported by WHO, covering 222 high priority districts in 22 governorates by providing essential drugs (SAM kits) and admission kits; these kits are gender responsive and child friendly as they include hygiene items for mothers and children when SAM children are admitted to the TFCs and other essential products like baby clothing to reduce the economic burden on families during the SAM children’ admission period. WHO will be targeting 23,428 SAM children along with their caregivers (mothers) with counselling on Infant and Young Child Feeding-IYCF, infection prevention and control measures and for breastfeeding in COVID_19. The project will ensure access of integrated trauma care through providing trauma care package and continuity of care at supported hospitals setting up life-saving integrated trauma system; strengthen the capacity of trauma surgeons and health staff working in supported hospitals to effectively manage trauma emergency care service; providing trauma medical supplies for 23 hospitals.
