YEMAC reported that 3,539 people have died as a result of landmines and that 292,000 explosives have been removed since the center's establishment in 1999.

YEMAC's Risk Education (RE) department is responsible for planning and implementing RE, monitoring against national standards, and integrating RE into mine action.
The only organization which had an RE program in 2008 was YEMAC, which consists entirely of military staff, and is funded by the government.
In May 2009, YEMAC's director noted that "there were no funds to carry out VA activities as planned," and that he "could hardly manage to keep the YEMAC VA department open."
