Last Saturday, HUMAN ACCES in Taiz Governorate concluded a training program for the emergency and acute needs response project for communities and IDPs in hard-to-reach areas in Maqbanah district, funded by Yemeni Humanitarian Fund (YHF).

The program contributed to the training of 30 health personnel on the integrated care of childhood diseases, outbreak management, and infection control (IPC) through the implementation of two training courses, in addition to the implementation of a training course targeting 20 male and female community volunteers on basic health messages in Maqbanah district, Taiz Governorate.

The training program falls within the project activities designed to provide immediate assistance to people with acute humanitarian needs, taking into account the mitigation of famine risks and the negative consequences of COVID-19, and to provide a minimum package of health services to the most vulnerable and displaced people in the target area.

All such services are accomplished by supporting the operation of two fixed health facilities and a mobile medical team, in addition to adopting a holistic approach to promoting good hygiene practices by implementing a volunteer program to raise awareness and facilitating project activities among the community through home visits to the targeted communities, as well as awareness-raising activities via available media.
