Ethiopia: Our Impact

The new HIV/AIDS Care and Support Program (HCSP), funded by the US Agency for International Development, represents the largest national expansion of HIV & AIDS services at the community and health center levels in Africa. Dr. Belkis Giorgis, the program’s NGO Capacity Building/Gender Advisor, discusses the challenges that Ethiopian women face and MSH’s family-focused, gender-sensitive approach to AIDS. To extend the reach and impact of our activities, MSH recognizes the importance of including senior staff such as Dr.

There is growing recognition that health plays a key role in stabilizing and rebuilding the world’s most troubled nations—those that have been ravaged by years of conflict, disease, poverty, and natural disasters.In times of crisis, health systems are battered by violence, poor governance, lack of funding, and loss of infrastructure. Where people no longer have access to adequate health services, mortality and morbidity rates increase dramatically.At MSH we believe that, despite the challenges, societies can move forward and health can be made a top priority.
