Since 2015, HI interventions have been adapted to the current context of conflict in Yemen. With the support of different donors, HI has been supporting two hospitals and one physical and functional rehabilitation centre in Sana’a City, building the capacities of their key staff in early rehabilitation care and psychological first aid, supplying rehabilitation equipment, and directly providing functional rehabilitation care and psychosocial support to war affected people (including through the donation of assistive devices and provision of Prosthesis). In 2017, these activities have extended to new facilities in and around Sana’a.
In parallel, HI is implementing an inclusion and protection mainstreaming project, to increase the knowledge and capacities of the staff of International NGOs in the inclusion of the most vulnerable people in their humanitarian responses (including PwD), so as to increase their access to essential services.

In these three projects HI is working with 12 international and national partners to ensure that their programming is inclusive.
In addition, HI is also providing technical support to 5 organizations and supporting clusters through sensitization sessions.
