GIK integration report

Somalia has been integrating GIK in its programming since 2011. This was mainly through pharmaceuticals that were used to support the government hospitals with Vitamin A and supplies for community-based management of acute malnutrition (CMAM) programs and health campaigns. From 2014, GIK started diversifying their resources to include medical supplies and equipment, education supplies, household items, tools, building supplies, clothing and shoes. Currently, GIK is a vital part of WV Somalia programming and has played a very critical role in our emergency response especially the CAT III response that was declared in December 2016. Somalia is keen to increase impact on child well being through engaging on GIK opportunities on behalf of the World Vision Partnership.
