In-Depth Protection Assessment Dashboard(Host Community), (Hayfan, Mawiyah and Dimnat Khadir) districts, Taiz governorate(UNHCR,INTERSOS) - 7 Oct, 2015


The objective of the Taizz assessment was to guide a tailored humanitarian intervention in the area, mainly focusing on the protection sector and providing the most vulnerable with life-saving assistance.


The information collected directly from the affected population was often enriched through formal meetings with local authorities and representatives who could detail the humanitarian situation of their area.

Key findings: 

Women, men, girls and boys currently IDPs and/or seeking refuge in Taizz are in urgent need of humanitarian attention and, therefore, the very first recommendation of this report is to immediately start to respond to the most pressing needs of the affected population, both IDPs and HCs. And specifically: - Emergency food assistance through general food distribution and cash vouchers/assistance; - Provide primary health care services, through mobile clinics, outreach services - and provide medicines and supplies; - Provision of safe and clean water; - Guarantee safe and equal access to sanitation facilities, including the distribution of hygiene kits; - Provide essential house-holds items (NFIs) in a dignified and gender sensitive way; - Ensure security from violence and exploitation to boys, girls, men, women and persons with special needs through the provision of safe spaces and capacity building of local communities; - Provide psychosocial, legal and material support, including education for children; - Conduct awareness campaign on protection mechanisms, risks and threats, including MRE/MRM, while advocating for the respect of IDPs and refugees’ rights; - Empower the community and guarantee community based approach throughout; - Build the capacity of local organizations already providing humanitarian assistance in Taizz or willing to do so
