1 January 2012 – The Consolidated Appeal Process for Yemen for 2012 has been finalized. WHO, the lead agency of the health cluster, worked with other partners to develop the health component of the process. A total of 15 projects were included from eight applying organizations, with a total budget of US$ 52 million compared to US$ 21 million for 2011. The target population for 2012 was increased to 2.65 million, compared to 1 million in 2011, due to the internally displaced population, their host communities and other vulnerable populations.

WHO submitted six projects, for a total cost of US$ 33 330 500, for the provision of essential health care services, recovery and rehabilitation of the health system, strengthening communicable disease surveillance, immunization and mass casualty management. WHO also submitted two projects for water and sanitation and one for nutrition.
