Introduction

The project for Reinforcing Animal Health Services in Somalia (RAHS) was designed to build on the achievements and broaden the impacts of previous EU funded animal health interventions recognising the vital role of livestock trade in supporting livelihoods and the inadequacy of public institutions in Somalia. The RAHS project aims to strengthen the policy, regulatory and operational environments for animal health services delivery, enhance public private and community partnerships to enhance access to services as well as strengthen livestock disease surveillance and control systems in Somalia.

The Overall Objective is to improve the livelihoods and resilience to natural disasters and shocks of livestock dependent households in Somalia and the Specific objective is to enhance the quality, access and sustainability of animal health services in Somalia.

The project has three expected results as follows:

  • Result 1: Capacity of Public institutions to deliver and regulate animal health services strengthened
  • Result 2: Public, private and community partnerships in animal health services delivery strengthened
  • Result 3: Surveillance and control systems for trade sensitive diseases strengthened
