The World Bank has approved an additional US$150 million in grants for the second phase of the Yemen Emergency Human Capital Project. The new funding builds on activities supported by a US$150 million parent project, which began in 2021.

“The project will strengthen access to critical health, nutrition, water and sanitation services for millions of vulnerable Yemenis,” said Tania Meyer, World Bank Country Manager for Yemen. “It is a key feature of the World Bank’s strategy to continuously invest in Yemen’s human capital during the conflict and safeguard the future of coming generations”.

The grant from the World Bank’s fund for the poorest countries, the International Development Association (IDA), will provide essential health and nutrition services to 5.2 million Yemenis; vital water and sanitation services to 1.3 million Yemenis, train 6,140 health personnel; and support 2,379 sites for early warning and disease surveillance systems to detect outbreaks of infectious diseases. Public health campaigns will also be carried out to prevent polio, malaria, schistosomiasis, and trachoma, amongst others. The project will be implemented by the United Nations Children’s Fund, the World Health Organization, and the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS), in collaboration with local stakeholders.
