The project is designed to respond to parameter 1 for providing primary, secondary, and emergency health services in 8 health facilities located in high priority districts of Hajjah governorate to ensure full access to quality health services for 68,167 vulnerable IDP and host community people to contribute to gender equality, but without attention to age groups. The 8 health facilities in Hajjah (Aslam, Bakil Almair, Mustaba, and Khairan Almohariq districts) will be supported with basic emergency medication, medical supplies and capacity building of health staff/community to ensure preparedness and response against outbreaks and emergency health issues. Regarding the procurement of medications and medical supplies, the SDF has the full capacity and high procurement standards for such undertaking, ensuring that sound procurement systems and procedures are maintained.

SDF will ensure that procurement activities will be delivered to the targeted health facilities with the required quality and quantity of goods and services at the time and place that they are needed and in the most cost-effective and efficient manner. As effectively managed with UNDP, WHO and YHF funded projects, procurement will be undertaken to provide the necessary support to the health facilities through competitive bidding in a timely manner and adequate quality and quantity and at the lowest cost. Above all, SDF has a certified procurement manual from UNHCR GSC, Hungary, which grants SDF pre-qualified procurement status with national scope to carry our procurement activities for UNHCR funded programs and is valid from 20 March 2017 to 31 December 2021. In addition, and in order to maintain the provision of high-quality health services by the targeted health facilities, SDF will be supporting the health staff with incentives and capacity building on first aid, trauma care, MISP/CMR, and prevention of communicable diseases. Other activities in the health facilities will include the following:

- Installation of solar systems to operate the health facilities.
- Supporting response and referral system through GHO ambulances.
- Logistical support.
-Provision of WASH activities within the HFs.

SDF will utilize its efficient experience that's remarkably demonstrated in several health interventions in Yemen to deliver quality healthcare services and cover the emergency needs/gaps in the targeted districts. Dedicated to respond to the people in need and enhance the prevention control of chronic and communicable diseases focusing on gender equality, despite their age groups.
