The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has launched a $49 million healthcare project in Ethiopia.
The project, called the “Quality Healthcare Activity,” will focus on improving the quality of maternal and child health services, as well as the prevention and control of HIV/AIDS and malaria.
The project will be implemented in 67 woredas (districts) in the Sidama, Amhara, Oromia, Central Ethiopia, South Ethiopia, and Southwest Ethiopia Peoples’ Regions.
It will work with local governments, health facilities, and community-based organizations to improve the quality of care, strengthen health systems, and increase access to services.
The project will reach over 10 million people over the next five years. It is part of USAID’s broader commitment to improving health in Ethiopia.
Here are some other details about the project:
– The project will work to improve the quality of care in health facilities by providing training for health workers, upgrading equipment, and improving infrastructure.
– The project will also work to strengthen health systems by providing support for planning and management, and by enhancing the capacity of local governments to deliver health services.
– The project will increase access to services by providing transportation to health facilities, and by providing financial assistance to people who cannot afford to pay for care.
The project is expected to significantly contribute to improving the quality of care, strengthening health systems, and increasing access to services.
