Project Name:Public Health Emergency Response System Enhancement Project in Somaliland

Project status:Projects in Operation

Cooperating Country:Africa, Somaliland

Project Description:

Somaliland established a basic framework for a public health emergency response system after the outbreak of COVID-19. However, communication and collaboration among the various governmental agencies responding to public health emergencies still require further enhancement. In addition, the country’s medical sector is grappling with deficiencies in essential medical equipment and services, well-trained healthcare and emergency medical providers, in-hospital and pre-hospital protocols, and its ambulance dispatch system. These challenges hinder the progress of a comprehensive public health emergency response system that provides quality emergency care services for all people. Therefore, this project will integrate Taiwan’s experience in strengthening public health emergency response capabilities into Somaliland’s Hargeisa and Gabiley districts.

The major components of the project will include:

(1) Enhancing the capacity of personnel from thecentral governmental agencies and related health facilities with sufficient knowledge and communication and collaboration skills in public health emergency response.

(2) Improving the functional abilities of health facilities and related agencies to manage public health emergency response.

(3) Assisting the development of standard operating procedures (SOPs) for ambulance dispatch and guidelines for pre-hospital emergency care and in-hospital care.

(4) Upgrading medical device and ambulance functions for pre-hospital emergency care and in-hospital care.
