SPIDER together with the Federal Ministry of Health, has partnered with the two Somali organisations, Kasmodev and SIDRA, to support the HADDA project. The purpose of the project is to apply and utilise digital development tools for the planning, management, and strengthening of the health system in Somalia. This will increase the capacity and quality of health service delivery and support robust evidence-based decision making in Somalia.
The initial phase of the programme is to map and engage key stakeholders and to establish Health Management Information Systems (HMIS) that connects the entire care pathway within Maternal and Child Health Clinics and referral services in three Somali regions, Banadir, Galmudug and Puntland.
The three regions suggested by the government all have Essential Package of Health Services (EPHS) and makes suitable choices for piloting a comprehensive HMIS.
In these efforts KasmoDev is the implementing partner who will engage and coordinate stakeholders. KasmoDev will also perform a technical audit of and start gathering system requirements that will inform the development of a masterplan for the stages of HADDA. Research partner SIDRA will map existing HMIS and projects in Somalia, establish a project base line and assess the capacity needs of HMIS in Somalia’s health sector.
KasmoDev is a development consulting firm working with Human Resources Resolutions and direct program delivery in Eastern and Horn of Africa countries. KasmoDev has offices in Kenya, Ethiopia and Somalia.
