68,672 beneficiaries of the project to promote access to sustainable health services in Taiz and Lahj governorates
Healthcare projects face multiple obstacles in achieving sustainability. Healthcare also strives to provide and maintain safe and high-quality services. To improve the health status and life-saving interventions, the project came to enhance access to sustainable and effective health services in the governorates of Taiz and Lahj, which was implemented by HUMAN ACCESS with the support of Yemeni Humanitarian Fund (YHF).
The project aims to provide a minimum package of quality health services to the most vulnerable population through the provision of primary health care services during the period from February to September 2021.
The project services included an integrated management of childhood diseases, an expanded vaccination program, and reproductive health services by supporting 4 fixed health facilities and a mobile medical team. This support resulted in enhancing the capacities of (45) cadres of the targeted health facilities, in addition to boosting the capacities of (30) community health volunteers in the field of health education.
The total number of beneficiaries from the provision of various health services reached (48,995) individuals from the most vulnerable communities in the targeted areas of Lahj and Taiz governorates.
On the other hand, the number of health education beneficiaries reached (19677) men and women in the targeted communities through hygiene promotion messages, and media and communication outlets. All of this was achieved by conducting 8,512 home awareness visits.
The project succeeded in upgrading the health system in the targeted districts, and contributed to alleviating the suffering of thousands of citizens who suffer today from deteriorating health conditions.
