Yemen, since 2015 violent fights are underway, a coalition of 9 countries led by Saudi Arabia supports the “legitimate” president Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi who fled the country because of the advanced of the Houtis and the troops of Al Saleh. This coalition leads airstrikes and ground fighting in the northern governorates region of Saada, Hajjah – Hodeida, Sanaa, Marib, Taïz. Added to this fighting, the 2216 resolution voted by the UN in April 2015 imposed an embargo on the guns in the area controlled by the Houtis. The real impact of this resolution is felt on the socio-economic situation of the Yemenite people who was already in a high precariousness. The war devastated infrastructures already defective : more the 100 sanitary structures have been partially or totally destroyed, 600 others are nun-fonctionnal.
In collaboration of the ministry of health, MSF support 5 medical structures in the Governorate of Amran where the situation is relatively normal, in consequence the Yemenite people looking for security find refuge there. MSF propose general consultation to displaced people thanks to mobiles clinics. The aim goal of the project is to give and facilitate access to medical and surgical health to the population of the governorate of north-Amran with a particular attention to the health of mothers and children.

Although Amran has been relatively spared compared to other governorates, the escalation of the conflict in the country has had a significant impact on our activities, particularly in Khamir and Huth, due to an influx of displaced persons from the governorates of Saada and Al Jawf.
In addition, the main hospital in Amran governorate remained closed for months during the conflict, and rural health centers lost their medical staff. All these factors led the population to massively refer to Khamir and Huth for access to health services.
This led us to start new outreach activities (mobile clinics and water-sanitation-sanitation) in Khamir and Huth to meet the needs of displaced populations and reduce the burden of patients at the Khamir hospital.
Scabies have recently spread to Khamir and Huth. In January, MSF treated about 150 patients, while in May we treated about 2,000 patients. MSF is currently conducting a mass treatment campaign in both cities. The Huth and Saada camps are spontaneous, unofficial camps. Those in the most vulnerable marginalized communities are there. The camps are made up of makeshift shelters or UNHCR tents. MSF is carrying out spontaneous actions. In huth access to water is insufficient, WATSAN activities (water, hygiene, sanitation) have been set up and a mobile clinic visits twice a week. In Khamir the situation is not different, peope have drilled a few hundred meters from the camp. On the camp of Khamir there are problems of security and MSF can’t have access because it is a private field. MSF operate non-food item distribution also.
