Despite ongoing fighting in the Somali Capital Mogadishu, a large-scale Child Health Days Campaign reached more than 288,000 children and 296,000 women with high-impact health services in all districts of the capital.


As part of the nation-wide outreach campaign to provide every Somali under-five child and every woman of child bearing age with a life-saving health package, UNICEF and WHO supported local authorities and community organizations to implement this critical intervention in Mogadishu.


Children were immunized against polio, measles, diphtheria, whooping cough and tetanus, and received Vitamin A, de-worming tablets and nutritional screening. Oral rehydration salts to treat diarrhoea and water purification tablets were also distributed as part of the package.


More than 3,600 trained health workers participated in delivering these services to communities.


This campaign is especially crucial in Mogadishu, where people are enduring harsh living conditions and lacking even the most basic social services like health, a situation compounded by the continued fighting.


SOUNDBITE, Halima Elmi, mother of eight (Somali): "Our living conditions are not good, we don't have health facilities, nor water and shelter. We don't even have job opportunities. I came today to see health workers who have the vaccines. This is what the people here need".


UNICEF and WHO staff on the ground worked closely with local authorities and partners in the planning and implementation of the campaign.


While delivering such a large scale campaign in a volatile environment is challenging, flexibility and good preparation
made it possible to reach children and women in Mogadishu.


All vaccines and other supplies were prepositioned, and health workers were on stand-by, to start the campaign when and where the security situation allowed.


Over a period of three months, all sixteen districts of Mogadishu were covered.


Against all odds, determination and commitment to reach vulnerable children and women in Mogadishu with crucial services made this ambitious initiative possible.
