PU-AMI’s history in the country and intervention strategy

PU-AMI has been present in Yemen since 2007. From 2007 to 2011, PU-AMI supported the primary health system in Hodeidah Governorate. After a one-year stand-by in 2011 due to security reasons, the mission re-started in July 2012 with a nutrition project focusing both on emergency response and a longer term community-based approach in Hodeidah and extended its activity in Raymah Governorate.

Since 2017, PU-AMI continues to concentrate its intervention in 6 districts of Hodeida and 3 districts of Raymah, where a high number of IDPs are stressing the capacity of the health system to cope in an already extreme precarious situation. The core field of intervention for PU-AMI in these Governorates is an integrated approach on nutrition including community-based activities (OTP/SFP and community mobilization as a strong component of the program, within health facilities and outreach activities.

In Hodeidah and Raymah governorates, PU-AMI works to contribute to reduce the impact and severity of nutritional challenges and to improve health status of most vulnerable populations, through supplementary nutrition integrated response based upon health, hygiene and nutrition education and capacity building. In Rayma, PU-AMI is supporting a stabilisation centre for severely malnourished children with medical complications
