Ethiopia

Exciting developments in Ethiopia hold great promise for sustainable national ownership of high-quality HIV programs and increased capacity to address the country’s significant malaria burden.

ICAP is supporting the Ministry of Health (MOH) in Ethiopia to enhance strategic information systems and to develop innovative approaches to increase the efficiency of health service. ICAP is also working with MOH to assess the impact of national HIV response efforts through the EPHIA HIV population-based survey.
