Since the conflict between Al Houthi and the Saudi-led coalition that started in March 2015, Yemen has become one of the three emergency in the world and is thus facing one of the worst humanitarian crisis, with 80 % of the population who is now in need of humanitarian aid. The context is highly challenging in regards to access to the communities despite significant needs in the country. Airstrike, embargo, high prices, etc have caused a profound deterioration of the nutitritional situation and hundreds of thousands lives are at risk.

Action Against Hunger has been operating in Yemen since 2012, upscaling its emergency activities in 2016 due to the conflict between Al Houthi and the Saudi-led coalition. Yemen is currently facing one of the world s worst humanitarian crises, with 80% of the population in need of humanitarian aid. Action Against Hunger has responded to multiple large-scale and interconnected emergencies: conflict, famine and a cholera epidemic, using a multisectoral approach (Nutrition & Health, Food Security, WASH and Mental Health programming) and by piloting the country s first Rapid Response Mechanism alongside UNICEF. Donors supporting these programs are the EU through ECHO and DEVCO, UN agencies (UNICEF, WFP, UNOCHA, UNFPA), GAC, DFID, SIDA and private foundations. Focus is now on providing life-saving quality health and nutrition services, addressing the causes of hunger and undernutrition and promoting evidence-based programming through surveillance, analysis, and advocacy. In 2017, ACF has been implementing Nutrition and Health programme in four of the most in need governorates: Hodeidah, Hajjah, Lahj and Abyan.

ACF is working in partnership with the Ministry of Public Health and Population (MoPHP) in order to strength their capacity in a context where about half of health facilities are non-functional or partially functioning. ACF is implementing or supporting a Minimum Service Package, approved by MoPHP and WHO. This package includes: CMAM, including treatment of children under 5 SAM and supplementation for MAM, and PLW, IMCI, ANC & PNC, primary health care for children older than five and adults and nutrition and health awareness (including IYCF). Depending on the area, ACF either directly providing the activities or technically supporting the MoPHP to provide those activities at health facilities, and in the South with mobile teams. ACF has responded directly to the first wave of Cholera started end of 2016, and responded to the second wave from April 2017 in Hodeidah city by resuming its support to MoPHP. As the number of admissions decrease, ACF is now focusing on developing mitigation activities. Capacity building to MoPHP health workers remains at the core of both ACF implementation model. One of the main barrier faces by ACF and MoPHP nutrition and health worker remain frequent constraint of access due to the on-going conflict. This has particularly affected our work in Hajjah governorate in 2017.
