GHD|EMPHNET's work in Yemen started with supporting the establishment of Yemen Field Epidemiology Training Program and was expanded to focus on strengthening routine immunization and emergency response. 

 

Building Field Epidemiology Capacities  

 

GHD|EMPHNET's work in Yemen started with supporting the establishment of Yemen Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) whose residents and graduates play an important role in strengthening the national health system in areas of disease surveillance, public health research, outbreak investigation, and other areas within epidemiology. The support continued in the following years and building on this achievement, GHD|EMPHNET mobilized residents and graduates to scale up alert and response activities to several outbreaks, mainly COVID-19.  

 

Sustaining Polio Free Status and Strengthening Routine Immunization

 

GHD|EMPHNET's work in Yemen has expanded beyond FETP-related training to supporting the Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) in strengthening the health system in polio eradication and routine immunization activities.

 

In 2017, the MOPH launched the Public Health Empowerment Program-Surveillance for Polio Officers (PHEP-SPO) with support from GHD|EMPHNET. The PHEP-SPO is an in-service training program designed to strengthen the capacities of governorate-level surveillance officers in the areas of surveillance and outbreak response and management, while also equipping officers with the skills needed to complement their current roles within the Ministry to help sustain polio eradication and contribute to strengthening the national health system. Two cohorts completed from this program with a total number of 51 graduates.

 

GHD|EMPHNET also contributed to the national efforts to improve routine immunization in other areas. Between 2017 and 2020, GHD|EMPHNET provided technical and logistic support to train over 700 district and community-level surveillance officers and volunteers on acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) surveillance in high-risk districts as part of a community-based initiative.

 

In addition, GHD|EMPHNET supported the MOPH in developing the Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI) communication strategy.

 

Strengthening Biorisk Management

 

GHD|EMPHNET also worked closely with MOPH to support the National Center of Public Health Laboratory in strengthening their institutional biosafety program in line with recognized international standards and in building a national network of biosafety experts in Yemen who are capable of making necessary improvements.

 

Emergency Response

 

In response to the cholera outbreaks and the emergency situation in Yemen, GHD|EMPHNET supported rapid response efforts in the country in 2018 by adapting the rapid response teams (RRT) training curriculum to the emergency context in Yemen and add Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) concepts. GHD|EMPHNET in collaboration with the Ministry of Water and Environment used this curriculum to conduct a WASH training of trainers.

 

Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases  

 

In 2019, GHD|EMPHNET, in collaboration with the International Organization for Migration, supported the MoPHP’s National Malaria Control Program (NMCP) through conducting an assessment survey on the retention of long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLNs) in selected districts in Ibb, Lahj, and Taiz. The survey provided guidance for more effective utilization of LLNs to contribute to improving district-level malaria control and to managing relevant capacity.

 

Working with the World Health Organization with support from the World Bank and END Fund, GHD|EMPHNET and the MOPH to eliminate Onchocerciasis in Yemen by supporting the Ministry in conducting one round of Mass Drug Administration campaign to eliminate Onchocerciasis in 29 high endemic districts across 8 governorates.

 

A Renewed Partnership

 

GHD|EMPHNET's collaboration with Yemen was celebrated with the signing of A Memorandum of Understanding with the MOPH in early 2017 which was renewed in 2019.
