01 August 2018 – EUTM-S Commander B.G. Matteo SPREAFICO paid a visit to Xooga hospital in Mogadishu.

Xooga hospital in the last twenty years is the only example in Somalia of a military medical structure (service available for civilian as well).

The Hospital, is managed from Somali National Army military and civilian personnel, available for military and civilian patients and 24/7 operational.

EUTM-S is developing a program to help the Somali Armed Forces to create a military self-sustained sanitary system, using that infrastructure like focus center for the health care activities and military sanitary system organization and development.

The center will continue to offer medical services to the civilian population.
