MIDA Health Northern Somalia (phase 3)

Description

The aim of the project is to strengthen the health sector in Northern Somalia by developing its human resources. The aim is to strengthen the health sector using the health professionals of Somali diaspora in Finland that travel to the area to train local health workers. The overall objective is to contribute to improved health outcomes in Puntland and Somaliland. A special emphasis will be given to women and children. The project is implemented by the IOM (International Organization for Migration). The project is the third and the last phase of the capacity building project for health professionals in Somaliland and in Puntlnad. The total budget of the project is 3 100 000 euros for 2014-2016. Since 2008, 700 local healthcare workers have benefited from the on-the-job training provided by voluntary experts. Under the initiative and leadership of voluntary experts, a dental clinic, an intensive care unit and a hemodialysis unit were established at Hargeisa Group Hospital. A Health voluntary expert also led a team in drafting a legal framework for accreditation of health professionals in Somaliland, which led to the signing into law of the Health Regulatoru Act.
