OUR APPROACH

Amref Health Africa in Ethiopia

Amref Health Africa in Ethiopia partners with the Federal Ministry of Health, the Regional Health Bureaus and the Woreda Health Offices, as well as  local and international health and development organizations.

 

We work within the Government of Ethiopia’s Health Sector Transformation Plan (HSTP), with a focus on ensuring health equity by serving women and children and reaching the most disadvantaged, inaccessible communities, including Ethiopia’s pastoralists and semi-pastoralist communities.

 

Our programs support health change at the community level while creating stronger health systems at the regional and national levels. Aligning our health-focused programs with the government’s priorities and the community’s needs helps to ensure the changes are sustainable.
