Strengthing the healthcare system in Ethiopia
In Ethiopia, the Covid-19 pandemic contributes to overwhelmed health systems and reduced access to other essential health services, such as child and maternal care. Furthermore, access to radio, TV and internet is limited, which poses challenges in reaching out with accurate information about Covid-19.
In this project, Amref Nordic/Amref Flying Doctors Foundation aims to help reduce the spread of Covid-19 and strengthen access to essential health services, such as child and maternal care, by educating local health workers in using mobile platforms.
The project is supported with 1 000 000 SEK
