CCM (Comitato Collaborazione Medica) is an Italian NGO operating in Burundi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan and Uganda. CCM is specialized in health-related projects’ implementation either in both humanitarian and development contexts.

Over the past years, CCM has been engaged in Kenya, partnering with local authorities to enhance primary health care services in Isiolo County, and health care for street youth in Nairobi. In 2018, a 3-year initiative funded by the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation will start, aiming at implementing the concept of One Health (integrating human, animal and environmental health) in Marsabit County, specifically in North Horr sub-County,

The project focuses on integrating the 3 aforementioned components of 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 pastors, who live tightly together with their animals and are particularly vulnerable to extreme environmental events.

CCM will realize the project with the following partners: 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.
