famine crisis, international relief, infant mortality rate, clinic services, average life expectancy

Hospital and clinic services in Somalia are free, but resources were severely strained by Somalia’s civil war. Although international relief ended a famine crisis in the early 1990s, primary health care remained an urgent need in the countryside. The average life expectancy at birth in 2002 was 47 years; the infant mortality rate was 122 deaths per 1,000 live births.
