A team from the refugee health project in Kharaz and Al-Basateen areas of Aden and Lahj governorates visited Al-Salam hospital for mental and neurological diseases in Aden as part of the follow-up and review of the project services carried out by HUMAN ACCESS and funded by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

Since psychological disorders in Yemen are on the rise as a result of war, mental and psychological health services have become increasingly important.

During the visit, the team met with the director general of Al-Salam Hospital, Dr. Thabet Qasem, and listened his explanation about the development of services provided to mental patients.

At the end of the meeting, Dr. Thabet was honored with an honorary shield presented by the Refugee Health Project, in appreciation of his cooperation in facilitating mental health services offered to targeted refugees who suffer from trauma resulting from the consequences of asylum and the tragedies generated by the poor conditions.
