This Mid-Term Review of the Joint Health and Nutrition Programme in Somali (JHNP) covered the period from February 2012 until September 2015. The JHNP was initiated to restore and strengthen the health systems in the three Somali zones through a comprehensive, approach among UN organisations, donors and the Somali health authorities. The MTR has found that the JHNP is highly relevant in relation to the Somali context and the overall development priorities and framework for Somali. The MTR also found that a comprehensive approach to restoring and strengthening both systems and actual service provision in this extremely difficult context is possible, although the programme had prioritized the delivery of health services but been less successful in achieving the outputs for other building blocks of the health systems.
