recently signed a co-operation and partnership agreement with the Ministry of Health and Social Care, Somalia.
QC said in a statement that the pact, inked at the ministry’s headquarters in Mogadishu, came as part of its keenness to co-ordinate and co-operate with all its government partners and support the efforts of the ministry for a gradual transition towards sustainable development in the health sector.
The agreement aims to organise co-operation with the health ministry to ensure QC’s active participation in health projects in accordance with the sectoral strategy and the priorities of the ministry.
The agreement was signed by Dr Fawziya Abikar, Minister of Health and Social Care, and Abdul Nour Haj Ali, director of the QC office in Somalia, in the presence of Deputy Minister of Health and several members of the ministry.
Areas of co-operation between the ministry and QC include the construction and rehabilitation of health centres and hospitals, the provision of necessary medical equipment and ambulances and the distribution of medicines to centres and hospitals, in addition to training medical personnel in Somalia and launching health relief campaigns for those affected by crises and humanitarian disasters.
The agreement comes at a time when the Somali government has begun to move gradually from humanitarian response towards the development and stability in Somalia through the implementation of sustainable development projects aimed at providing health services to all citizens.
