Ethiopia plans misoprostol rollout for 24% of country

The Ethiopian Ministry of Health, in response to overwhelming interest in making misoprostol available to stop deaths from postpartum hemorrhage, has started planning on a rollout covering 24%. Ethiopia is the second largest country in Africa, with 77 million people. The program will include training of health care workers through the public sector, from hospitals to community health workers in rural villages. Monitoring and evaluation will be put in place in order to understand the appropriate level of access and distribution channels for a countrywide implementation. Venture Strategies for Health and Development has helped to develop this project and will provide monitoring and evaluation throughout. We are pleased to be able to support the Ministry of Health in this historic endeavor for Ethiopian women.
