Programme priorities and partnerships

The UNFPA country programme was developed in consultation with the Federal Government of Somalia, Federal Member States, United Nations agencies, development partners, donors, civil society organizations and the youth advisory board. The Programme is aligned to the National Development Plan (NDP9); Federal Member States plans; the UNFPA Strategic Plan, 2018-2021; the Common Country Assessment; the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF); the Management and Accountability Framework; the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development; the commitments on accelerating the ICPD made by the Somali Government at the Nairobi Summit; the Somali Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health Action Plan; the National Youth Policy and Family Planning 2020 Action Plan; the Essential Package of Health Services 2020, Somali Midwifery Strategy Document 2019-2024, Somalia Human Resources for Health Policy; and the Somali Road Map for Achieving Universal Health Coverage by 2030. The programme will build on past achievements and lessons learned; employ flexible strategies within the humanitarian, development and peace nexus; and adjust to the existing and emerging realities of federalism.


The overall goal of the programme is to improve the health, well-being and rights of women, adolescents and youth, and the most vulnerable populations. To successfully contribute to the implementation of NDP9, UNFPA will adopt a context-specific four-by-five strategy, with a focus on achieving four transformational results supported by five strategic enablers. The four transformational results for UNFPA Somalia are: (a) zero preventable maternal deaths; (b) zero unmet need for family planning; (c) zero GBV; and (d) zero FGM.


To realize these four transformative results, UNFPA Somalia has identified the following five strategic enablers: (a) cultivating meaningful adolescents and youth engagement and advocacy initiatives to equip them with the effective skills and capacities; (b) ensuring high-quality, integrated and inclusive service delivery models to advance SRH, including family planning, preventing and responding to HIV, GBV and FGM, and enhancing adolescent and youth health, knowledge and well-being; (c) enhancing evidence-based policy, legal and accountability frameworks to advance gender equality, preventing and responding to GBV and FGM, and empowering women and adolescents and youth to exercise their reproductive rights; (d) strengthening linkages between humanitarian and development action, securing sufficient emergency response capacities, and enhancing resilience at individual, community, institutional, and system levels; and (e) strengthening national capacity to generate, analyse, disseminate and utilize high-quality disaggregated data on population and development and SRH issues, including in humanitarian settings. Different modes of engagement will be used to achieve the programme objectives, including advocacy and policy dialogue, capacity development, knowledge management and service delivery. The programme will be implemented in collaboration with the Government, other United Nations agencies, civil society organizations, including faith-based, adolescent and youth-led organizations, with the aim to reach those with the least access, the most marginalized, persons with disabi lities, and disadvantaged and underserved populations.
