Good afternoon!

It’s great to see such a large turnout today.

I’m very honored and excited to take part in launching not one, but four USAID activities in cooperation with the Government of Ethiopia’s Health Sector Transformation Plan.

These new awards will improve primary health care services in both agrarian and pastoral regions and will expand access to safe water and sanitation.
