CHF-DMA-0489-032 "Outbreak control and response to communicable diseases in emergency health settings including IDP camps and settlements in with focus on identified areas of priority including Banadir, the Afgooye corridor, Lower Shabelle, Mudug, Galgaduud in Somalia" - 1,070,202$

Chronic conflict, collapsed health infrastructure and health systems and the lack of leadership most complicated by the current high IDP populations in priority regions pose major health risks for both displaced and host populations. Limited access to and disruption of health services due to conflicts activities to monitor population health situation must be in place, especially in light of known endemicity for communicable diseases, seasonal outbreaks and sporadic outbreaks. In past months, humanitarian agencies have generally scaled down their field activities or even withdrawn from some geographical areas mainly due to lack of funding leaving gaps and vast populations without access to health services. As such, the risk of outbreaks especially in the identified areas of priorit6y which host vast numbers of IDPs is high.

Objective: To prevent avoidable morbidity and mortality due to epidemic prone diseases ensuringe early timely dectection, investigation and timely appropriate response to and control of communicable disease outbreaks affecting populations of humanitarian concern across Somalia.


  • Reduced death and disability from preventable communicable disease in populations of humanitarian concern.
  • Capacity of the healthworkers improved at local level in disease surveillance and outbreak response in emergencies resulting from conflict and natural disasters e.g. floods and droughts.
  • Effective surveillance and response system functioning in all areas of Somalia especially 6 regions of priority, resulting in less disease outbreaks due to early detection and response.
