our commitment in Somaliland

AN-NYA Foundation aims to support the existing efforts and plans to promote the nationwide qualified surgical and anesthetic care. For this AN-NYA Foundation will cooperate with Edna Adan University Hospital (EAUH) in Hargeysa, Somaliland. To further these aims, AN-NYA Foundation, with partners, will (not exclusively) focus the following activities: 

  • Surgical camps of 2 weeks by training teams. The team members are experienced certified specialists. The composition of the teams depends on the need of EAUH and the intended topic of the course.
  •  Initially the focus lies on the training of General and Trauma Surgery. The training modules will be developed collectively.
  • The content and composition of the training will be in accordance with existing training programs such as

       o   Global Initiative for Emergency and Essential Surgical Care (GIEESC) by WHO (2)
       o   Membership of the College of Surgeons MCS(ECSA) (3)

  • The training provided should complement the existing training for Obstetrics.
  • Training for vascular surgery is also desired.
