In response to the mission, WHO is sending inter-agency emergency health kits to Banadir Hospital that will provide essential medicines for more than 10 000 people for three months. WHO and Health Cluster partners are also supporting the disease early warning system and outbreak response teams, plus preparing to train hospital medical staff in surgical and trauma care.
