Final paper Review Student’s Name Course Instructor Date Submitted Institutional Affiliation Somalia is a sub-Sahara country located in the African continent at the Horn of Africa. It suffered from the civil war which destroyed most of its infrastructure and health sector. The state has been working on rebuilding its health sector but has faced many challenges. The challenges are due to a shortage of professional health staff poor governance lack of enough financial resources and decentralization of the health sector due to the war (Somali health care system and post-conflict hybridity 2010). The poor health sector has affected the vulnerable society significantly. Somali has a high child and maternal mortality rate caused mainly by malnutrition and diseases which are very common in Somalia such as tuberculosis malaria diarrhea cholera as well as polio (Somali health care system and post-conflict hybridity 2010). High maternal mortality I due to lack of the population within the country. The government of Somalia does not give enough resources to build up the health sector in Somalia. It also has poor participation in health promotion within its country. These factors are what build a healthy nation. The USA government plays a big role in health promotion and is the front-runner in educating its citizens on the importance of health promotion. Generally speaking the Somali health care system is poor in comparison to most healthcare systems and needs to be upgraded fully with the involvement of its citizens and the government.
