Humanitarian situation and needs:

The conflict in Yemen started in 2014 with an internal political crisis which, later on, degenerated into an open war between northern-based Houthi Movement, allied to former President Saleh, and forces loyal to the official government, led by President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi. In March 2015, violence escalated when a Saudi-ledcoalition launched military operations to restore the official government and stop the Houthi-Saleh alliance, who already controlled Sana’a and advanced on Aden. The Saudi intervention led to a stalemate in which the country largely remains as per now.

The war also escalated on the economic front as the Saudi-led coalition declared a blockade on large portions of the country still controlled by the Houthis. The fragmentation of power deepened in the end of 2017 and beginning of 2018, when the Houthi-Saleh alliance blew up, two months before the collapse of Aden’s fragile balance between Hadi’s supporters and Southern independentist forces. During that period, anti-Houthi forces secured territorial gains in southwestern Al-Jawf, southern Al-Hudaydah and eastern Al-Bayda which, while far from rapid, were notably quicker that their previous pace. The main battlefield of the Yemen war is now the city and harbour of Hodeidah.

The conflict has led to devastating consequences for a population already highly vulnerable. Before the civil war erupted, Yemen was already enduring a humanitarian crisis with 15.9 million people in need of humanitarian assistance, recording one of the highest rates of malnutrition in the world. The intervention of the Saudi-led coalition in March 2015 translated into a severe aggravation of the humanitarian context. The disruption of the commercial and humanitarian imports, the displacement of populations, the disrupted market system, the loss of livelihoods and incomes, the damage on the private and public infrastructures, and the general destabilization of the public system contributed to widespread food insecurity, malnutrition and a serious lack of access to health. With the lift of the blockade by Saudi Arabia in December 2017, a return to the pre-blockade prices and imports was expected at the beginning of 2018. However, activities of Al Hodeidah and Salif ports have not been back to normal, and staple foods’ and fuel prices remain volatile. Besides, displacement of populations continues to be a collateral damage of the conflict, as up to 16 000 households have been displaced since December 2017 in or near Hodeidah, Taizz, Ibb, and Lahj governorates.

As a result, an estimated 22.2 million people in Yemen need some kind of humanitarian or protection assistance, including 11.3 million who are in acute need. 17.8 million people are food insecure at national level, of which 8.4 are severely food insecure. Among these, some 1.8 million children and 1.1 million Pregnant or Lactating Women (PLW) are acutely malnourished, including 400,000 Children under 5 years-old (CU5) suffering from Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM). With only 50 per cent of health facilities fully functional, and a disruption of health personnel’s salaries, 16.4 million people inYemen require assistance to ensure adequate access to healthcare – 9.3 million of whom are in acute need. An estimated 16 million Yemenis need humanitarian assistance to establish or maintain access to safe water, basic sanitation and hygiene facilities. Collapsing urban water and sanitation systems, deteriorating water and sanitation conditions in rural areas, and lack of means to maintain personal hygiene and purchase safe drinking water all contributed to one of the worst cholera outbreaks in the world. Finally, the increasing difficulties of food supply in the country and, more importantly, the ongoing collapse of the riyal, which severely impacts the price of basiccommodities, raise the possibility of a large scale problem of access to food in Yemen in the coming months.

Our action in the field:

PUI has been present in Yemen since 2007. From 2007 to 2011, PUI 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.

In 2017, PUI continues to concentrate its intervention in 6 districts of Hodeida and 3 districts of Raymah. The number of IDPs in those two Governorates is very large and weight consequently on a population already living in extreme precariousness. The core field of intervention for PUI in these Governorates is an integrated approach on nutrition including community-based activities (OTP/SFP and communitymobilization as a strong component of the program, within health facilities, but also within an outreached approach and mobile clinics.

In Hodeidah governorate, PUI 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 (Mobile Health Clinic, support to Health facilities, General Food Distributions, etc.). In Raymah governorate, PUI is responding to the ongoing nutrition crisis through the same activities as in Hodeidah (primary health care and management of acute malnutrition for children U5 and pregnant and lactating women), as well as running a Stabilization Centre for severely malnourished children with medical complications.

As part of this integrated approach in those two governorates, PUI also implements food security and livelihoods activities, mostly consistingon general food distribution and some Food For Training activities (started in 01/2017).  In addition, water, hygiene and sanitation will also be part of PUI intervention in the focused area, with WASH being prioritized in the rehabilitation of health facilities to manage more effectively nutrition activities.

In May 2017, PUI started being a part of the Emergency Cholera Response in Hodeida and Raymah through the set up or Oral RehydrationPoints and support of one Cholera Treatment Centre in Raymah. PUI will also position itself in influencing positions, through effective participation to clusters and sub-clusters (nutrition; food security and livelihoods; WASH) and working closely with relevant government departments (MOPIC; MoPHP).The mission will explore opportunities for geographical expansion through developing and clarifying expansion criteria beyond the current Governorates and District.
