Context: In Yemen, based in Hodeida
Yemen is one of the country with L3 emergencies in the world. The health and needs in the country are very high and the context is very challenging in regards to access to the communities. Recent WHO report shows only half of the health facilities are functional and providing primary health care services with significant shortage of medicine and supplies (only 30% of needed drugs & supplies are coming to th country) in Yemen (Nov 2016). Prevalence of diarrhea was found to be ranging from 35%-45% (SMART surveys 2015-16) in Hodeidah and Hajjah Governorate while difficulties in breathing were found to be more than 50%; measles 5-10% including ongoing cholera outbreaks.
The current burden urges international partners to engage in the provision of primary health care services alongside Government health facilities to reach out the affected population mostly in out of reach areas. ACF has been providing integrated lifesaving IMCI, ANC/PNC services along with treatment of acutely malnourished children in Hodeida, Hajjah governorate through nutrition and health mobile teams with support from ECHO, SIDA and UNICEF.
In Hodeidah, ACF is running projects delivering health and nutrition services with support from ECHO, SIDA, and DFID. In 2017, ACF has significantly focused to align health interventions within the nutrition programs leading to scale up of life saving health interventions for sick children, pregnant and lactating women. ACF's health teams, working under Nut & Health Coordinator, comprised of Deputy Co-Health, medical doctors, Nut & Health program managers, Deputy PM-Health, Nurses and midwives. Due to the significant scale up of health operations and diversed health context, ACF Yemen mission is aiming to enhance internal technical capacity of the current and newly recruited teams for provision of quality health services and be prepared for responding to the emerging health needs in country. Therefore, the health expert is expected to support Head of department in harmonizing the technical approaches and protocols for the mission; developing implementation tools, technical skills of the teams and coach them on their roles and responsibilities. ACF programs have had experience of blockade of field access from Hajjah governorate for last few months but Hodeida activities were running smoothly so far.
