AHA in partnership with the Government of Djibouti and the UN Refugee Agency, is assisting migrants and refugees fleeing the current conflict in Yemen.

Following an interagency assessment mission in the Obock region, where the refugee influx is heavy, AHA has designed three intervention points to provide timely healthcare services. Working with the Ministry of Health, first aid services are provided at the point of arrival. In addition, refugees have access to nutrition and primary healthcare at point of registration and in the newly established Obock transit center. In Djibouti Ville, AHA, in partnership with the UNHCR, is supporting Yemeni refugees with chronic illness through provision of medicine and access to healthcare.

An interagency contingency plan is under development for an anticipated arrival of 30,000 refugees in the next six months. Read More...
