Health service delivery in Ethiopia is characterized an inadequate number of well-trained health providers, limited health infrastructure and shortages of finance, equipment, and supplies. USAID is committed to improving health systems by strengthening human resources, expanding health financing options, and increasing health commodity and essential drug availability. USAID also works to strengthen policy, governance, and evidence-based decision making to improve health systems.

Activities Include

  • Health Sector Financing Reform: Enhance the quality of equitable access to essential health services through reform and institutionalization of a sustainable health financing and system that accommodates alternative financing and expands risk sharing mechanisms through community based health insurance.

  • Improving the Logistics System/DELIVER II: Improve management of contraceptives by strengthening the contraceptive logistics system and build an integrated health logistics system.

  • Leadership, Management and Governance: Strengthen health management systems and promote harmonized and accredited in-service training for Ethiopian health workforce.

  • Private Health Sector Program: Expand provision of key health services including HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, and family planning services through private health service outlets. The program also supports public-private partnerships and improves the legal environment to enhance private sector participation in health service delivery.
  • Strengthening Human Resources for Health: Address health workforce shortages and improve the quality of pre-service education, in- service training and governance system for human resources management.
