The Somali Health Cluster

Under the leadership of the World Health Organization, the Somali Health Cluster is made up of more than 150 international and national humanitarian health organizations that are working together to build partnerships and mutual understanding and to develop common approaches to humanitarian health action in Somalia. Serving as a mechanism for coordinated assessments, joint analyses and the development and implementation of the health crisis response strategy, the Health Cluster enables participating organizations and local authorities to work together, harmonize response efforts, integrate cross-cutting issues, and use available resources efficiently within the framework of agreed objectives, priorities and strategies.
