Somalis, particularly those in rural areas, continue to lack access to critical medical services. High needs have been compounded by limitations on movement and access to medical resources as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic and associated lockdowns. Consistent militant activity by al-Shabaab and ISIS-Somalia limiting civilian access to critical support networks present a second, constant threat to these communities. While PPE is being flown into Somalia by various international organizations, it is not reaching much further than the capital of Mogadishu. Our regional partners continue their operations in newly liberated areas outside of the capital, but skyrocketing prices and resource scarcity have limited their ability to deliver services to civilians in need.
