Aba is 80 years old. He’s a farmer and lives just a 30 minute walk from Asendabo Health Centre. Two years ago he started having headaches and problems with his vision. His children urged him to attend the health centre and there he was found to have high blood pressure (hypertension). On presenting at the health centre, the chronic disease team started him on drug treatment – Enalapril – to control his blood pressure.
Now Aba has no symptoms and feels very satisfied with the care he gets at his local health centre. He is one of thousands of Ethiopians who are benefitting from our project to decentralise non-communicable disease care in rural Ethiopia.
