The COVID-19 pandemic is a global health crisis that has resulted in great disruption to education worldwide. In Somalia, it has affected learning and forced the closure of learning institutions including schools and universities since March 18th, 2020. In responding to this outbreak, a harmonized and coordinated approach is needed to enable learning to continue and to minimize the effect of the disruption to children’s learning.
The Ministry of Education, Culture and Higher Education (MOECHE) of the Federal Government of Somalia drafted a strategy note on COVID-19 preparedness and response and shared with its partners.
