Interaction was founded by a group of dedicated international and local Yemeni experts to manage the ever-growing needs of development work in Yemen. It all started in 1996. Back then, Khalid Al-Dubai who was working for an innovative urban primary health care Dutch funded project in Yemen, and Dr. Frits Muller was the project back stopper both agreed to set up Interaction as a private not for profit organisation to meet the ever-growing needs of development work in Yemen. Later on, the team expanded to include Roy Stoves, Wendy Lee, Dr. Mohamed Ibbi and Dr. Ghazi Ismael.
From its inception, Interaction won a bid in partnership with two international organisations to manage a National Program on IEC for MCH & FP in Yemen with Roy Stoves as the program team leader, but sadly died, and his death was a shock for the team and a setback for Interaction.
Since 2014, our work has evolved into third party monitoring of humanitarian programs and projects as a result of the armed conflict. In doing so, we continue to make a positive contribution to the improvement of health and socioeconomic status of the poor and vulnerable people particularly women and children.
