Estimated 28 000 people had regrouped in this governorate during the last months of 2009 and in early 2010, fleeing intense fighting ongoing in Saada governorate. Also, endemic diseases such as malaria, diarrhoeas and children malnutrition heavily affect the estimated 900 000 resident population of the governorate.
In 40-beds Khameer district hospital, MSF teams intervene to reinforce healthcare services in the Emergency Room and hospitalisation service, providing free of charge healthcare, supervision and staff training, wards rehabilitation, as well as supply for drugs and medical items.
In Huth, 30 km north of Khameer, MSF teams also intervene to strengthen the medical response to emergencies. Outpatient consultations and gynaecological care (including maternity) are provided as well.
In the governorate capital city of Amran, MSF has been supporting the outpatient department and providing ante-natal care for Saada displaced people in Beit-el-Sultan hospital until July, 2010.
