Ethiopia Final Report

This project supported the training of community nursing students in Ethiopia's Alkan Health Science College. Originating from rural communities, the nursing students completed a 36-month program at Alkan's Dessie campus in the rural highlands of the Amhara region. In addition to formal medical training, these students also gained a concrete understanding of the importance of returning to their remote communities after graduating in order to increase access to primary health care services.  

Many of these students have first-hand experience of how challenging it can be to find a health worker when a family or community member is facing a medical emergency. IntraHealth International has been helping Ethiopia to strengthening the country’s systems to train, manage, recruit, post, and retain a high-quality and equitably distributed health workforce, yet much remains to be done to ensure every family has access to high-quality, integrated health services. The country’s health system continues to face challenges and human resources for health are both insufficient and poorly distributed, leaving many—particularly rural communities—without access to trained and supported health workers.

While the effort to scale up the health workforce in Ethiopia is ongoing, this project has had a positive impact increasing the number of health workers. This project has come to a close but it is our hope that the students who received training will inspire others to seek similar opportunities.

IntraHealth is extremely appreciative of the support this project received.
