JEDDAH — A prominent Saudi aid organisation has paid the World Health Organization contribution on behalf of Yemen for the past few years.
The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre has covered Yemen’s WHO contribution for the last four years equating to a total of $185,790.
Out of its moral obligations to the Yemeni people, the centre has paid the dues of Yemen’s Ministry of Public Health and Population, so the people of Yemen can continue to benefit from the latest updates in all global medical fields. This also allows the country to keep abreast of the emerging global technologies in the field of health.
The move allows the Yemeni government to ensure its membership of the world health body and continue to be an active member in the organisation by exercising its voting rights at the World Health Assembly.
