Somaliland is in the Horn of Africa bordered by Djibouti, Ethiopia, and Somalia. Somaliland declared independence from Somalia in 1991. This fact still goes unrecognized by many despite Somaliland having a democracy and regular elections. Somaliland provides its people with opportunities and has its own army, police, and coast guard as well as its own currency.1,2 Somaliland strives to bring healthcare to its people and has many training programs especially for Clinical Health Officers. Formerly a British protectorate, Somaliland still has relations with the UK.3 The Clinical Health Officer profession started in 2010. The UK has helped with the budget of the National Clinical Officer’s Training Curriculum. Sometimes the profession is known as Clinical Officers, Clinical Health Officers, or Clinical Public Health Officers.
