Health Systems Management
USAID is committed to improving health systems by strengthening human resources, expanding health financing options, and increasing health commodity and essential drug security. Currently, health service delivery in Ethiopia is characterized by low service utilization as the result of an inadequate number of well-trained health providers, limited health infrastructure, shortages of equipment and supplies, and weak health systems. USAID works to strengthen policy, governance, and evidence-based decision making to improve current health systems management.
