Expanding Our Impact

Ethiopia’s health system has improved greatly in recent years, allowing it to achieve the Millennium Development Goal 4 of reducing child mortality by two-thirds before the target year of 2015.

Abt Associates-led projects are working to improve the financial and physical health of Ethiopians by helping the country expand community-based health insurance, evidence-based health system decision-making, and local governance of health facilities. Many challenges remain, including maternal mortality.

14.5 million people are enrolled in community-based health insurance.
