PRIORITIZATION OF HEALTH POLICY ACTIONS IN SOMALI HEALTH SECTOR

BACKGROUND INFORMATION AND POLICY DEVELOPMENT PROCESS
The policy development process was based on extensive consultations organized at each health authority level, led by the Somali Federal Ministry of Health (MOH), the Puntland MOH and Somaliland MOH, respectively. Following the initial high level contacts with the Ministers of Health, consultation workshops were organized and steered by the Director Generals of these ministries and attended by all heads of departments and by the health development partners operating within the framework of the health sector. WHO/UN offices in the field actively participated and assisted this process, while in Mogadishu and Garowe, the Banadir University and the Puntland Development Research Centre (PDRC) provided additional organizational support to these consultations. The participants gave due consideration to the status, trends, challenges and achievement of the health sector and engaged in an iterative process of plenary and group work sessions and generated through consensus, a range of health policy priority directions. These policy directions were made in coherence with the formulated zonal health strategic plans for their effective implementation. Throughout this engagement, there was a common understanding among health stakeholders that the health policy deliberations will exhibit the vital role of the health sector in the overall socio-economic development and improving the health and well-being of the population.
