Maps & Data

Health Facility Viewers

The results of five governorates surveyed are now available via on-line viewers. These map-based viewers contain individual health facility listings and photos, as well as governorate and district level aggregate information.

Geo Datasets

With support from USAID, the Ministry is collecting and assembling cleaned and georeferenced administrative boundaries, physical maps, and health-related geographical information. These datasets may be downloaded in Geodatabase (.mdb, Access 2003) or ArcGIS Shapefile (.shp) format. You need ArcView or ArcCatalog to view the maps or access the data. Please note that the Shapefiles are made available for your convenience, but this format does not fully support Arabic script.

  • Administrative boundaries. Last update May 2006 by Yemen Ministry of Local Administration (MOLA). Original shapefiles created in early 1990s by the Central Statistical Organization (CSO), scanned from 50k maps produced in 1986.

  • Road network. Dataset created by Central Statistical Organization in the early 1990s from scanned 50km maps.

  • Wadies. Digitized by YemenDot from Robertson Group PLC topo maps (1:1,000,000). Maps produced in 1990.

  • Villages. 2004 population point data coverage based on 2004 governorate level data, population projections in 2003, and previous 1994 Census village data obtained from Yemen Central Statistics Organization (CSO).  In addition to the 2004 data being more current than the original 1994 data, the 2004 population data have categories for gender and five age groups in five specific governorates: Al Jawf, Amran, Marib, Sa’adah, and Shabwah. These data will be replaced when more comprehensive 2004 Census results are available from CSO for these areas and the remainder of Yemen governorates. Additional documentation is available.

  • Health facilities. Health facility locations come from two MoPHP surveys. Currently, facilities in Amran, Al Jawf, Marib, Shabwah, and Sa'adah are available from the 2004/2005 health facility survey supported in part by USAID. Health facility survey results for other Governorates will be posted to this Website as the data becomes available. This data set includes facilities in other governorates based on modified 1998 CSO health facility survey data prepared by the Social Fund for Development (SFD). Note that the SFD survey did not use GPS to locate facilities; the locations are the nearest village to the facility, based on CSO village information. FacilityIDs can be used to join this dataset to the relevant surveys.
