Yemen WASH Cluster Assessment Qarah District, Hajjah Governorate, Yemen November 2018 [EN/AR]
Yemen is facing one of the world’s worst Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) crises, as deteriorating WASH infrastructure contributes to a cholera outbreak, and represents one of the underlying causes of malnutrition in the country.
On behalf of the Yemen WASH Cluster, REACH coordinated a household-level assessment to provide an understanding of WASH needs, gaps, and priorities in 38 districts prioritized for famine and/or cholera interventions that also host a high concentration of Internally Displaced People (IDPs - 8% or more of the total district population).
Findings are based on data collection conducted from 4 September to 28 November 2018. Following a two-stage random sampling approach, representative samples of host community and IDP populations were collected in randomly-selected locations in Qarah district, Hajjah governorate. Interviews were conducted with 103 host community and 104 IDP randomly selected households in the district. Findings are representative at district level with a 95% confidence level and a 10% margin of error.
This factsheet provides an overview of the key findings of this assessment, for both IDPs and host community households in Qarah district.
