Short Description of Comitato Collaborazione Medica CCM                                                                                                                       

CCM is currently working in Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan and Uganda. CCM works  at promoting the health for all through a comprehensive approach that supports the Health System Strengthening on one side, to ensure uninterrupted provision of quality care services; and the engagement of local communities on the other side, to increase the demand of care and ensure an active participation of women and families in the safeguard of their own health.

CCM has been working in Kenya since the early 70s, mainly supporting the primary and secondary healthcare system in the Eastern Province; With the actions concentrated in Marsabit and Isiolo counties, both located within the arid and semi-arid lands and largely inhabited by pastoral communities.

In May 2018 CCM started a three-year project, funded by the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation and CEI, promoting the resilience of pastoral communities in North Horr (Marsabit County) through a One Health approach that aims at increasing resilience and engaging local communities and authorities, as foreseen by the Kenyan National OH Strategic Plan.

The One Health project focuses on integrating human, animal and environmental health among the pastoralist community in North Horr, based on the assumption that human health cannot be treated as separated from animal and environmental health, especially among pastoralists, who live tightly together with their animals and are particularly vulnerable to extreme environmental events.

CCM is implementing the project in partnership with Vétérinaires sans Frontières-Germany, TriM-Translate into Meaning and DIST-Dipartimento Interateneo di Scienze, Progetto e Politiche del Territorio del Politecnico e dell’Università di Torino.
