Ethiopian Government Collaborating With USAID, Partners To Improve Access To Family Planning
In this USAID "IMPACTblog" post, Abiy Shewarega of the USAID | Deliver Project, Ethiopia, describes the Ethiopian Ministry of Health's commitment to improving family planning through programs that, in the past six years, have "seen a rapid increase in contraceptive use and a decline in the average number of births per woman." He discusses the importance of supply chain and logistics activities, concluding, "Availability of family planning commodities does more than simply support better health for women and their children. As a result of the continued commitment of the Ethiopian government and collaboration with USAID, women ... are not only able to maintain good health for themselves and their families, but can also secure the family income, send their children to school, and improve the family's potential for the future" (5/22).This is part of the KHN Morning Briefing, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
