YEMEN/2018/Access to healthcare in Amran governorate


MSF teams have been supporting Al-Salam hospital in Khamer, Amran governorate, since 2010 (ER, maternity, paediatrics, neonatal unit, ITFC, IPD, OT, lab and blood bank and physiotherapy). Today, the security situation in this governorate is more stable, with a low number of airstrikes. This is in contrast to the northern and coastal governorates of Yemen, which have experienced an increase in airstrikes since the end of 2017. In Amran governorate, Yemenis can now travel more safely to access healthcare, but they can’t always afford the cost of transportation to reach a health facility. Since March 2015, the national average prices of fuel commodities have more than doubled (113% for diesel and 102% for petrol), and Amran governorate is still suffering from scarcity of fuel (WFP, April 2018). This has had an impact on people’s ability to access healthcare, especially people living in remote places such as Harf Sufyan district, north of Khamer, where MSF has been running outreach clinics since April 2018. According to a recent Epicentre study (nutritional situation analysis for MSF in Yemen, January 2018), Harf Sufyan has been identified as one of the most vulnerable districts in Amran governorate in terms of malnutrition.
