Through the Emergency Human Capital Project (EHCP), funded by the World Bank and implemented by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the World Health Organization (WHO) are embarking on a joint initiative to enhance the quality of services provided at primary healthcare facilities in Yemen.

This training programme will bring together about 200 recently appointed general practitioners (GPs) at primary healthcare facilities, to provide them with clinical mentorship and hands-on, practical training in key practice areas.

Training programme areas include the fundamentals of healthcare quality, infection prevention and control, reproductive health, newborn health, Integrated Management of Childhood Illnesses (IMCI); Essential Programme on Immunization (EPI); nutrition; noncommunicable diseases (NCDs); and mental health and clinical mentorship.

The in-depth programme will be delivered over 35 days and will ensure that the GPs have a strong foundation from which to deliver quality care to the communities they serve. The training will be conducted, at the same time, with three cohorts that will convene in Sana’a and two groups in Aden.

UNICEF Representative to Yemen, Peter Hawkins explained the significance of this approach: “By investing in the training and support of general practitioners, we are empowering them to deliver quality care to the communities they serve. This comprehensive program in Yemen is not just about improving health outcomes, but also about building a resilient healthcare system that can effectively respond to the needs of the people. Through a successful partnership between UNICEF, WHO, and the World Bank, we are committed to ensuring that every individual in Yemen has access to the essential healthcare services they deserve.”

WHO Representative in Yemen, Dr Arturo Pesigan reiterated the centrality of primary health care in health systems strengthening: “Strong health care services using primary health care approach are at the heart of the model of care in Yemen as well as WHO’s efforts to attain universal health coverage globally. We are very happy to be taking forward this approach with UNICEF and the World Bank to enhance the quality of these services in Yemen.”
