Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has launched a project to restore and equip six health centres in Sanaa and Taiz, Yemen, aimed at providing healthcare services for coronavirus (Covid-19) patients.
As part of QRCS’S ongoing efforts to back the failing health sector of Yemen, this project is funded from the revenue of the fundraising campaign launched in commemoration of the late Jaber al-Masoud, a renowned blogger.
Under Phase 1, two quarantine/isolation facilities are being supported at the Al-Thawra General Hospital in Sanaa and Al-Jomhouri University Hospital in Taiz. Later, another four centres will be supported under Phase 2: Al-Thawra Hospital and Al-Jomhouri Hospital (Sanaa) and the Al-Salam Hospital and Yemen Red Crescent Hospital (Taiz).
These were selected from a list of 38 health centres designated by Yemen’s Ministry of Health and Population and the Yemen Health Cluster as Covid-19 quarantine facilities. The project also involves premises restoration and maintenance to enable the health centres to offer high-quality treatment services in light of the nature of the pandemic.
