EU_FlagHargeysa (SLpost)- The European Union has today declared the launching of Hargeysa Group Hospital Rehabilitation Project with a support package of 1.5 million Euros under the partners of Terre Solidali and UNOPS.

This was declared in a press Release by the European Office in Hargeysa, Somaliland, stating that EU will increase the efficiency, quality and sustainability of Somaliland’s main Hospital in Hargeysa.

The declaration press release by EU’s Office in Hargeysa is as follow: “Today, 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 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 will support the development of an infrastructure master plan for the hospital geared towards supporting functional integration of 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 would 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.”
