Yemen’s Ministry of Health published a National Health Strategy 2010-2025, but the advent of war in the country has prevent the strategy’s operationalization. A major priority is the development of a Health Financing Strategy to feed into the National Health Strategy and the next 5 Year Operation Plan. The Health Financing Strategy will be preceded by an in-depth analysis of the current health financing situation, as well as a clear understanding of the process of drafting this strategy (including participatory elements and consultation rounds and formats).
