Abstract

This paper outlines some of the key political and socio-economic drivers to instability in Somalia and the challenges faced in delivering healthcare in a country where neither economic support nor stability of the healthcare workforce can be assured. We will describe the scope of international assistance and explore key priorities for healthcare system strengthening in the future.
