Message from the Minister

Minister of Health Development

Dear Guests, Media Representatives

It is a pleasure for me to address the health community in this issue of the Somaliland Journal of Community Medicine on Noncommunicable Diseases and Universal Coverage.

The challenges Somaliland faces as a country are formidable, both in their number and in their complexity. Much has been written, for example, about the hard-to-overcome challenges in the field of mother and child health, including malnutrition and vaccine-preventable diseases. Despite our vast complexity, substantial investments in money and human resources are slowly improving the situation. Much the same can be said of water and sanitation issues.
