In Yemen, since mid-March 2015 the armed conflict has spread rapidly throughout much of the country, with devastating consequences for civilians. Almost five years of violence has led one of the world's poorest countries into chaos. The disruption of the commercial and humanitarian imports as well as of the market system, the displacement of populations, the loss of livelihoods and incomes, the damage on the private and public infrastructure and the general destabilization of the public system have contributed to the widespread of food insecurity, malnutrition and to a serious lack of access to health. Today, according to the Yemen Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO, 2019), it is estimated that approximately 24.1 million people in Yemen, about 80% of the population, are in need of humanitarian support, including 14.3 million in acute need, while 19.7 million people in Yemen require assistance to ensure adequate access to healthcare.


At the time of writing, PUI operates in Al Mansuryah, As Sukhnah and Al Mighlaf Districts in Hodeidah Governorate and in Al Jabin District in Raymah Governorate in the North; moreover, in 2019 a base has been established in the South, in Al Mokha District, located in Taizz Governorate, supported by a small office in Aden.
