MannionDaniels was invited to lead a half-day session for masters’ students studying on the Global Health course at the Pasteur Institute in Paris. The title of the session was ‘Global Health in Conflict Zones: the example of Somalia’.

Clea Knight from the MannionDaniels technical team led the session which focussed on the importance of aid effectiveness, conflict sensitivity and an active civil society in fragile and conflict affected states. Clea drew on three case studies from recent work that she has been involved in with MannionDaniels in Somalia: supporting the Health Authorities to develop their first health sector strategic plans for Somalia; undertaking a Conflict and Needs Appraisal in Kismayo; and developing a country profile on female genital mutilation in Somalia.
