New Project to Improve Primary Health Care in Ethiopia

by Amref Health Africa

On October 21, JSI, in partnership with Amref Health Africa and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, launched a project in Ethiopia to expand high-quality primary healthcare services that will ultimately lead to improved reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health, and nutrition outcomes.

The five-year Improve Primary Health Care Service Delivery (IPHCSD) project will strengthen the health system by enhancing service quality, access, surveillance, and accountability. During implementation, the project will focus on identifying and rectifying gender disparities in primary health care service delivery.

Over 100 people attended the launch (pictured above) including Minister of Health Her Excellency Dr. Lia Tadesse, and representatives from implementing partners and regional bureau heads. In a gesture of camaraderie, attendees joined hands to cut the cake.

In her statement, Dr. Tadesse (in the photo below), said “the IPHCSD project will help in the operationalization of the Ministry’s 15-year Health Extension Program roadmap,” and that “the evidence…will inform the national primary health care implementation plan and MOH [will] provide the necessary support to realize the project goal.”
