Context in the country

The armed conflict has spread rapidly throughout much of Yemen since mid-March 2015, with devastating consequences for civilians. More than three years of violence has led one of the world's poorest countries into chaos. The disruption of the commercial and humanitarian imports as well as of the market system, the displacement of populations, the loss of livelihoods and incomes, the damage on the private and public infrastructure and the general destabilization of the public system have contributed to the widespread of food insecurity, malnutrition and to a serious lack of access to health. Today, according to the Yemen Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO, 2019), it is estimated that approximately 24.1 million people in Yemen, about 80% of the population, are in need of humanitarian support, including 14.3 million in acute need, while 19.7 million people in Yemen require assistance to ensure adequate access to healthcare.

PUI has been working in Yemen since 2007, by providing an integrated approach mainly focused on health and nutrition, coupled with food security and WASH activities, in order to combine an emergency response with a longer term community based approach.
