The HCS has completed four years of activity and this is the fourth annual review.
The NGO Consortium consists of five international NGOs working across Somaliland, Puntland and South Central. PSI is the lead agency and is operating in Somaliland, Health Poverty Action (HPA) is operating in Sahil, Somaliland, Tropical Health Education Trust (THET) is operating mainly in Somaliland, but across all three zones in certain sectors, Save the Children is operating in Kakaar, Puntland and Trocaire is operating in Gedo, South Central. One of the key purposes of the programme is to support the health sector in moving from a humanitarian response to health provision to a longer term developmental approach. The programme has been designed to be adaptive and responsive to changes in context, using innovative techniques and mechanisms to pilot interventions in order to set standards and provide evidence for wider health sector reform.
