ABU DHABI: The UAE has provided the Yemeni health sector, during the period 2015 to 2017, with financial assistance amounting to Dhs502 million ($137 million) to support its medical and health services in emergency cases, combat contagious diseases and provide basic healthcare, as well as to train heath sector employees.

This is within the framework of the UAE’s desire to support the health situation in Yemen and promote its health, water and sewage sectors, which directly affect the lives of its people.

From April 2015 to April 2017, the UAE has provided financial assistance to Yemen exceeding Dhs 7.35 billion ($2 billion) to help more than 10 million Yemeni people, including four million children.

According to a report issued on Tuesday by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, this assistance included building and restoring 40 hospitals, health centres and specialised centres, as well as providing medication, medical equipment and devices and ambulances in the governorates of Aden, Lahij, Dhale, Abyan, Hadramaut, Shabwa, Marib, Taiz, Al Hudaydah and Socotra island.
