The relative stability in Aden Governorate and the city of Mukalla in Hadramawt have attracted tens of thousands of internally displaced persons. But the influx of people has increased pressure on institutions struggling to continue providing their services, especially the cleaning and improvement funds and water institutions. As it has become unable to fulfill its full roles, the institutions are working with old equipment and limited supplies with limited technical capacity. All this caused an increase in the accumulation of garbage in the streets and reduced access to clean water, so that the streets of Aden and the city of Mukalla became less sanitary, and the risk of disease and injury became more likely. The violent and ongoing conflict in Yemen has also threatened lives and livelihoods in more than one way. Even on normal days, the lack of resources for water and sanitation institutions threatens the widespread spread of dengue fever, malaria and typhoid diseases.
