Qatar to Build Kidney Hospital

August 24 , 2019

The Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD) has pledged to build a kidney treatment hospital in Ethiopia. QFFD will build the hospital based on the agreement that was previously reached between the leaders of the two nations. An Ethiopian delegation led by Ambassador Tebeje Berhe, director of Middle East Affairs at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, held talks with heads of the Fund on ways of commencing with the construction of the health facility. The project will be undertaken in two phases, and 18 million dollars has been allocated for the first phase, which includes the construction of a building and the training of professionals. There are nine doctors for every 100,000 people in Ethiopia. For 400 hospitals in the country, there are only 9,182 doctors, 16,765 nurses and 1,379 midwives.
