LONDON (SD) – The Minister of Health of the Federal Republic of Somalia attended an event at Somalia’s Embassy in Britain to launch the Better Lives project, which will run for a period of two years.

The project will be implemented in Galmudug, Jubaland, and Banadir Region, with the aim of benefiting over 1.5 million people, including 400,000 Somali mothers and 300,000 Somali children, who will receive essential health services, including vaccinations.

The project, funded by UKAID, will be implemented in 11 districts, including some from the federal member states such as Galmudug, Jubaland, and Banadir region, targeting areas previously inaccessible due to extremist threats and where basic health services were lacking.

The launch event was attended by the Director-General of the Ministry of Health and Social Services of the Federal Government of Somalia, Dr. Guuleed Cabdijaliil, along with officials from the Ministry of Health, members of parliament, and representatives of international health organizations.

The Minister expressed gratitude to the project’s supporters, stating that the project will significantly contribute to maternal and child health and play a crucial role in advancing healthcare in the country.
