Capacity Building for Health Workers

A poor living condition has caused a huge number of children and pregnant lactating women to be malnourished. Malnutrition is estimated to contribute more than one third of all child deaths, although it’s rarely listed as the direct cause of death.

In Ash Shamayatayn district of Taizz governorate, the number of people affected by extreme poverty has been doubled as the crisis continues to deteriorate. Surely, it’s the most afflicted district that has so many vulnerable IDPs from different governorates.

Therefore, Relief and Development Peer Foundation has taken an immediate response to provide humanitarian assistance for the most affected and vulnerable people in Ash Shamayatayn district, Taizz governorate. The major objective of “The Emergency Nutrition and Food Security Project” is to support health centers with sufficient medical supplies in order to provide health care services for severely malnourished children and pregnant lactating women.

Under the umbrella of “The Emergency Nutrition and Food Security Project” RDP has conducted a comprehensive training on community based management of acute malnutrition (CMAM) for health workers in partnership with Tamdeen  Youth Foundation (TYF) and funded by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA).

From January 29th to February 7th, 2018, the training was being held in Taizz governorate targeting ten health workers disaggregated ( 5 men and 5 Women )  from two health centers (Maternal &Childhood health center and Adeem Hadarem health center) of Ash Shamayatayn district.

Ultimately, Relief and Development Peer Foundation has served these ten health workers with all needed equipment to start providing nutritional services for severely malnourished children and pregnant lactating women in the aforementioned health centers.
