Somali-Swedish Collaboration in Research for Health
This training health research programme includes the participation of six universities in Somalia, five universities in Sweden, and the Federal Ministry of Health, as well as Puntland and Somaliland Ministries of health. We are targeting mid- to senior-level Somali professionals who are living and active within the country to receive both face-to-face and online teaching in quantitative and qualitative research methodologies. Each trainee will also conduct their own health research project under the guidance of two mentors, one Somali and one Swedish.
Through this process, the project aims to develop a model for working collaboratively within fragile states, with an ultimate objective of stimulating hope and thereby contributing to rebuilding the country.
