For this website we are concentrating on medical issues of interest to Somali Women of all ages. This includes items related to the health of babies and children.
We make particular reference to age related conditions including the menopause, which we consider is a subject which the Somali Community needs to be better informed about.
The authors of this website would like to emphasise that we are not ourselves medically trained, the advice given is based on personal experience, with links to medical websites such as the UK National Health Service (NHS).
In all cases if you have a medical condition that you are unsure about you should contact the appropriate medical authority – in the UK this will usually be you General Practitioner (GP or family doctor). Or in case of a medical emergency call your local emergency service – 999 in the UK – 911 in the USA etc.
