Health

Abdiwahab Abdi Jama (Nakaruma), Regional Public Health Officer

Hygiene education is an important aspect of community health promotion. An important work of environmental sanitation personnel is to provide to communities the knowledge of what makes and keeps
people healthy and why they become sick. People stay healthy or sick as a result of their own actions and behaviors. Therefore, people need to understand and analyze the root causes of the health problems
facing them, and be able to take the necessary actions to reduce or prevent those community health problems. In most developing countries, like Somaliland, mortality and morbidity predominantly
result form poor sanitation, contaminated water, inadequate hygiene practices and harmful behavior or action.

Obituary Of Lieutenant-Colonel Walter Brown: Officer Who Won An MC In Italy After Earlier Withstanding A Fierce Cavalry Charge By Native Troops In Abyssinia

 

Only 10 years earlier the two had been fighting each other and Brown predicted, correctly, that there would be a rebellion in the south against the north within 12 months.

He was then given command of the Somaliland Scouts, but both his parents then died and, in 1958, he retired from the Army in order to take over the family estate in Berkshire.

Editorial & Opinions

 

The international community should not rush into recognizing the government that comes out of Mbagthi talks

 

Editorial

The regional and international sponsors of the so-called reconciliation talks on Somalia, being held at Mbagathi, Nairobi, are obliged to take the necessary measures for addressing the deep concerns expressed by the government and people of Somaliland over the consequences that the outcome of the Kenya-hosted process might have for their country’s sovereignty, peace, security and democracy. Ignoring Somaliland's concerns would be a grave mistake by the
international community. Somaliland wants international guarantees that the government expected to emerge out of Mbagathi would be a government for Somalia (the former Italian colony) and not for Somaliland (the ex-British protectorate).

By: Ali Gulaid, San Jose, CA

Sovereign States Rule... Or Do They?

While it was at first the principal loser, the multilateral governance system has arguably emerged as the greatest winner of the war in
Iraq. But if this victory is to be meaningful, then multilateralism must also take a hard look at itself.

The Sovereignty Of Somaliland And Its Role In The Conflict Resolution Of The Region

Farhiya Ali Ahmed, Johannesburg, South Africa

Part III [Continued from the previous issue]
Fences Make Good Neighbors?

The task of resolving the Somali conflict has been delegated by the AU to the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD). Therefore the relations that these regional member states have with the Somali territories are a significant consideration to be taken note, especially since it has become clear that member states’ governments are deeply divided in their interests and approaches.
