The Banaadir Maternity and Children State Hospital in Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia, now has a Patient Monitoring and Management System thanks to the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TKA).

The Banaadir Maternity and Children State Hospital in Mogadishu, which offers free or low-cost care depending on patients’ financial situation, received equipment and technical training from TKA to set up a Patient Monitoring and Management System.

Since the hospital’s inception in 1976, patient records have been stored in hard copy, which has created significant difficulties in tracking patients’ medical conditions. This issue was resolved by the electronic Patient Monitoring and Management System that the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TKA) established. The system’s goals were to fortify the hospital’s foundation and make it possible to provide modern patients with faster, more efficient care.

In the 500-bed facility, where most of the 60,000 patients are low-income couples and children, nearly 9,000 infants are delivered yearly.

Dr. Fartun Sharif, the chief physician of the Banaadir Maternity and Children State Hospital and a graduate of a Turkish university, Dr. Amina Hassan, the assistant chief physician of the hospital; Hassan Abukar, the head of technical services at the hospital; Mohamed Abdullahi, the technical training officer of the contractor, and others attended the opening ceremony held for the department following the installation of the Patient Monitoring and Management System.

Chief Physician Sharif mentioned in her remarks at the inaugural ceremony that Türkiye and TKA had made significant contributions to the hospital’s infrastructure and personnel development and that their nation and people were proud of the work Türkiye and TKA were doing there.

Hassan Abukar, the hospital’s director of technological services, emphasised that TKA was available to all Somalis, not only through state institutions but also with its own expertise. “The Republic of Türkiye was there for us in the most trying circumstances,” he declared. The Somali people will always be appreciative.

TKA has been operating in Somalia for 11 years, according to lhami Turus, the organization’s coordinator. Using its skilled, knowledgeable, and experienced staff, TKA has completed numerous projects and activities that impact every facet of life, including health, agriculture, and the environment.

The construction of a patient monitoring and management system at the Banaadir Maternity and Children State Hospital required equipment and technical training, Turus continued. In light of this, we firmly believe that the two nations’ relationships and collaboration will develop and deepen in health and other areas.
