Improving health is Our Main Goal
SHINE Supply falls under the Somali Health and Nutrition Programme (SHINE) umbrella. The Programme is funded by UK aid from the UK government. Running between 2016 and 2021, SHINE aims to improve the health and nutrition status of Somalis, with a particular focus on women and children.
Mott MacDonald is an implementing partner in the overall SHINE umbrella, working in collaboration with five agencies contracted by DFID Somalia:

Somali Advocates for Health and Nutrition (SAHAN) also implemented by Population Services International (PSI);
- The health and nutrition Commodity Security component implemented by United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF); and

SHINE Supply will be implemented from 1 July 2018 until 31 March 2021 in the regions of Awdal and Togdheer in Somaliland and Galgaduud and Banadir in the Federal Republic of Somalia. The Programme will work closely with the Somali Health Authorities to achieve the following two broad objectives:
