Combating COVID 19 in Somaliland

The Somalilander-American Health Association (SAHA) works to address critical public health needs impacting Somaliland’s hospitals and healthcare systems. While these doctors, nurses, dentists, and Allied Health Professionals are fighting the COVID-19 pandemic in North America, they are also committed to providing technical expertise and logistical support to the local health professionals and communities at home. “Our hospitals need respiratory ventilators, oxygen generators, personal protective equipment, disinfectants, gloves, gowns, masks, and consumables. Most of our hospitals have no functioning intensive care units [ICUs] except for the Hargeisa referral hospital, which can serve a limited number of patients.” The success of this organization is undoubtedly attributed to the participation, collaboration, and creativity of our members and community partners – your innovative ideas and monetary contributions are welcomed to supply the desperately needed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to the frontline doctors, nurses, health professionals, and other public officials fighting this deadly disease.

SAHA will deliver PPEs directly to the six regional hospitals, Las Anod, Erigabo, Burao, Berbera, Hargeisa, and Borama and subsequently dispensed to the targeted public health centers under the auspices of local regional hospital leadership.
