MSH in Ethiopia

Since 2003, MSH has worked with Ethiopia’s Ministry of Health to make tuberculosis (TB) services accessible to 55 million people—more than half the country’s population. Our efforts to combat HIV have focused on integrating HIV services into antenatal care and labor and delivery by training health providers and providing supportive supervision and other services. And we have supported the introduction of clinical pharmacy services, helped draft the national strategy to prevent and contain antimicrobial resistance (AMR), and introduced systems to support patient-centered pharmacy services. 

In partnership with Ethiopia’s Ministry of Health and local governments, we empower leaders, train pharmacy workers, help health facilities select and procure medicines, and design information systems that support evidence-based decision making. Our work has helped address critical health workforce challenges, bolster management and regulatory skills, promote evidence-based planning and decision making, and accelerate diagnostics for COVID-19.
