In Yemen, where the world's biggest humanitarian crisis has been experienced with long-standing political instability, the COVID-19 outbreak has been more deadly than many countries.
Considering the inadequacy of the health system in the country, it has become almost impossible for millions of people to access health services. In the country where it has become increasingly difficult to respond to the increased respiratory and heart failure cases with the pandemic, the 5-month Covid-19 intensive care units capacity building program carried out for 30 nurses in cooperation with IBC &IDRF has been completed
Nurses who completed their training were presented with their certificates at a ceremony held in Al Mukalla, the capital of Hadramud State. Hadromud Minister of Health and Mukalla Health Director and families of nurses who received certificates attended the ceremony. With this training, nurses specialized in intubating patients with respirators in intensive care units.
