Background and Purpose of TOR

World Vision Somalia (WVS) is committed to building resilience of Somali communities through integrated programmes in WASH, Health, Nutrition, Protection, Education and Food Security livelihoods Interventions in South Central. In order to meet this commitment, WVS embraces the role of partners in helping and supporting us achieve our objectives as we endeavor to serve the most affected and vulnerable populations.

WVS’s ability to achieve its humanitarian and development goals depends upon building effective partnerships with civil society, governments, academia, UN agencies, peer non-governmental organizations, and the private sector. At the World Humanitarian Summit in 2016, donor governments pledged to direct 25% of emergency and development assistance to local and national organizations by 2020. Driven by a desire to improve aid effectiveness, and development and humanitarian outcomes, the international community committed itself to building the capacity of indigenous organizations to address issues that impact their communities.

This project will support Ministry of Health in SWS to achieve its’ goals of (i) reducing maternal and newborn mortality; (ii) reducing under 5 mortality and improving child health and nutrition (iii) reducing excess mortality due to communicable and noncommunicable diseases (iii) strengthening the health system (iv) increasing the coverage of the package of health services.
