The study sought to investigate the factors that determine effective implementation of health projects in Gedo region of Somalia. The specific objectives were to: establish how communication determines project implementation; assess how planning determines project implementation; establish how financial support influence project implementation; and assess how monitoring and evaluation efforts determines project implementation. This research study adopted descriptive research design in an attempt to investigate the factors that determine effective project implementation. The target population of this study was 55 employees of World Vision working under health projects in Gedo region of Somalia. The researcher determined the instrument’s content and construct validity through the help of expert judgment (the supervisor). The researcher used Cronbach alpha to test for reliability. Primary data was gathered directly from respondents through questionnaires. Descriptive and inferential statistics was used for data analysis. The study found that poor communication minimizes chances of creating an understanding, an approval of the implementation and sharing information between the project team and communicating to the whole organization thus resulting in ineffective project implementation. The study found that World Vision Somalia has a plan for implementation stages that helps in assessing keenness of an organization for change as well as the efficacy of the proposed change targets. The study found that there was enough financial support for project implementation at World Vision Somalia thus effective project implementation since finances are essential in the running of a project initiative in terms of facilitating execution of implementation tasks. It found that making allowances for adequate monitoring and evaluation gives the project manager and field officials the ability to anticipate problems, to oversee corrective measures, and to ensure that no deficiencies are overlooked thus resulting in effective project implementation. The study recommends that World Vision should improve integrated communications plan to improve project implementation. The organization should allocate sufficient funds to projects and ensure there is independency in utilization of the funds.
