A. General context of the project
General context of the project
INTERSOS has been operating as a humanitarian organization in Somalia since 1992, when it began to support the Jowhar Regional Hospital in the Middle Shabelle region. The hospital, supported to this day by INTERSOS, remains the only health facility and the Centre of reference for all the primary health centres of the region, covering a basin of over 250,000 people.
Our projects focus on key areas of protection, health and nutrition & WASH. In particular, INTERSOS provides medical and health assistance, nutritional programmes and access to water and adequate sanitation, as well as protection of women and children.
