BACKGROUND AND CONTEXT
The private sector is the dominant provider of healthcare in Somalia, having experienced significant growth at all levels, from conventional private for‐profit and not‐for‐profit health facilities, to large chains of general hospital settings providing specialized care. It is estimated that the private sector provides around 80% of the country’s medicines by importation and distribution through private retail outlets and pharmacies. The private sector provides essential services that are often the first and only point of contact for consumers and patients seeking health advice and health products.
