Adam Farah, MBBS, MPH
Reproductive Health Officer and Officer-in-Charge, UNFPA Somaliland Sub-office, Somalia

I was born in the early eighties. I have completed my primary and secondary education in the years 1999 and 2003 respectively in Somalia. I joined University of Hargeisa in 2003 and received Bachelors in Medicine and Surgery in 2009. During my internship, I have worked at Hargeisa and Erigavo Hospitals and acted the head of the interns in my area. In late 2010, I have travelled to Uganda and got enrolled at Kampala International University (KIU). In 2013, I have received my Masters in Public Health from KIU. I have worked with Population Services International (PSI) as a research officer for 15 months. I have joined UNFPA in late 2013 as Reproductive Health Officer.

With UNFPA, I usually do the following:

  • Contribute to the formulation and design of the RH/MH programme and its component projects in line with Government priorities within UNFPA mandate and according to UNFPA programme policies and procedures.
  • Ensure the creation and documentation of knowledge about current and emerging, population, reproductive health and gender issues, by the programme team through the analysis of programme, projects, strategies, approaches and lessons learned.
  • Contribute to the selection of Implementing partners and contractors suitable for implementing UNFPA programs.
  • Ensure quality of a program implementation through supervision, reporting and monitoring systems.
  • Lead the UNFPA Response in Humanitarian Emergencies in Somaliland.
