Project Name:Maternal and Infant Health Care Improvement Project in Somaliland

Project status:Projects in Operation

Cooperating Country:Africa, Somaliland

Somaliland’s National Development Plan II (2017-2021) lists reproductive, maternal, neonatal and child healthcare as health sector priorities. However, poor accessibility of maternal and child health care services prevents the country from providing comprehensive healthcare from pregnancy through delivery to postnatal care, limiting abilities to detect high-risk pregnancy and further reduce preterm labor and neonatal mortality.

This project aims to improve the accessibility of maternal and infant health care and includes:
A.Upgrading the functions of selected health care facilities.
