The European Union has launched the rehabilitation project for the Hargeisa Group Hospital to improve access to health services for Hargeisa's rapidly growing population.

Together with its partners, Terre Solidali and the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS), the EU will increase the efficiency, quality and sustainability of Somaliland's main hospital that faces infrastructural and capacity constraints as it was outstripped by the size of the population.

With a support package of 1,5 million EUR, the 24 months project will support the development of an infrastructure master plan for the hospital in order to integrate the various departments of the hospital, separate critical areas and introduce critical missing facilities. Further, the action will support the development of small scale infrastructure interventions as well as implementation of a maintenance system for the medical equipment of the hospital. The project is also set to address quality of clinical care through the introduction of standard clinical protocols and improvements in the collection and analysis of clinical data.

The project interventions will also include a strong capacity building component for the respective target groups. Sound financial and information management tools will increase transparency, accountability, and efficiency, while creating an enabling environment to generate and manage resources, and use the enhanced incomes and information to provide more adequate services.
