Somalia is mainland Africa’s easternmost country, and one whose coastline is the longest of any country on the mainland. Somalia is semi-arid with less than 2% arable land. Years of conflict, drought, and famine have kept Somalia in a state of crisis, and its population is expected to triple by 2050. The Government of the Federal Republic has recently embarked on its plan to offer essential services that have normally been provided by the private sector and relief organizations. In 2015, Somalia became an FP2020 commitment making country, and in 2017 the government revised its commitment to ensure access to quality reproductive health services, including family planning, in emergency and crisis settings from 50% of facilities offering FP services in 2017 to 80% by 2020. With the September 2018 announcement of the World Bank’s direct investment of $80 million in the government and the prospect of a 2018/2019 demographic and health survey, the government’s goal of expanding service delivery, building resilience to climatic shocks, and boosting economic opportunities is promising.
