World Bank Backs Yemeni Health Scheme

The World Bank is supporting a $35 million project that aims to provide health services to children and women in remote Yemeni communities.

The project seeks to deliver maternal, neonatal and child health services in impoverished Yemeni communities, including districts in the governorates of Sanaa, Ibb, Reimah, Al Dahlaa and Al Baydah as well as urban slums in Aden.

Around 1 million children and a little over a million women of childbearing age will benefit from the project.
