Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, NYCMedics has begun implementation of its health systems development in Yemen. In another partnership with the WHO to help communities and governments in situations of ongoing crisis, NYCM has deployed to Aden to help set up a pre-hospital care system which is largely non-existent in Yemen. This includes establishing emergency operations center protocols for ambulance responses, and for transfer of care when patients arrive at the hospital. Although it has been a trying time given the conditions of the pandemic, NYCMedics is determined to continue working in the field to help the most vulnerable. Yemen particularly is facing a deadly food crisis exacerbated by the decrease of aid given the global pandemic.
