Eight million Euros to support health care
Doctor Jameela Al-Raebi, undersecretary of the Ministry of Public Health and Population, said the agreement aims to increase opportunities to provide reproductive health services for mothers in rural areas.
Al-Raebi said the pact will provide emergency obstetric care equipment for 160 health centers in eight governorates.
The agreement means to improve the supply and funding system for family planning in 2013 and 2014 and to support providing services to Internally Displaced Persons.
Marc Vandenberghe, a UNFPA representative in Yemen, said the agreement includes supporting health centers in the affected areas and purchasing and distributing needed equipment and medicine to provide reproductive health services as well as to support the Health Ministry to provide health services for the IDPs due to last year’s clashes.
