    Our commitment to accessing and assisting people in need in Somalia remains steadfast. 

    Over the past four decades, our teams have responded to recurring humanitarian and health emergencies caused by conflict, climate-related events such as widespread flooding and recurring droughts, as well as outbreaks of diseases such as cholera, measles, and COVID-19. 

    Today, we continue to work in hospitals in Somalia and Somaliland, providing obstetric and paediatric care, in- and out- patient nutritional support, emergency services, and tuberculosis. Our teams also run mobile clinics providing basic healthcare in camps for internally displaced people and host communities. 
     
    We carry out vaccination campaigns and respond to nutritional crises where feasible. MSF also provides resources to conduct ‘eye camps’, which reach thousands of people with eye diseases. 

    A major part of our work involves specialised training for healthcare staff and capacity building, along with rehabilitating hospitals, and expanding and improving the state of water, sanitation and hygiene services
