Officials Embark on EU Funded Maternal, Child Health Project

The Ministry of Health has embarked on a three-year project aiming to improve maternal and child health with an outlay of 19.2 million euros sourced from the European Union (EU). To be implemented in 15 weredas across four regional states - Afar, Benishangul-Gumuz, Somali, and Gambella - the project targets solutions to healthcare constraints brought on by gender inequality. It also focuses on nutrition, family planning, reproductive health and hygiene. Officials from the Ministry disclosed the project is eligible for extension and additional funding following a review of its effectiveness. In the past two decades, Ethiopia has reduced maternal and child mortality by half, but a maternal mortality rate of 412 per 100,000 live births and child mortality rate of 67 per 1,000 are still among the highest in the world, according to data obtained from USAID.
