Mogadishu. October 2004. View of Mogadishu north. Mogadishu is the place where effects of the conflict are more striking. There are arround 400.000 internally displaced persons. Access to health structures is quite impossible for the danger to circulate in the streets where combats are on-going and all type infrastructures have disapeared: water, sanitation, schools... The absence of state during more than 13 years has made impossible any investment in public structures. It is estimated that around 72% of Somalia's population lacks access to basic healthcare services and the healthcare system is in ruins.
