[afro-nets] Ethiopia's Health Extension Program: Pathfinder International's Support 2003-2007
Pathfinder International is pleased to announce the publication of Ethiopia's Health Extension Program: Pathfinder International's Support 2003-2007, describing Pathfinder's support to the Ethiopian government's Health Extension Program (HEP). Following years of close collaboration with Ethiopia's federal Ministry of Health, regional, zonal, woreda, and kebele sector offices, and community leaders, Pathfinder began supporting the HEP soon after its launch in 2003. Pathfinder's community-based reproductive health agents support the government-trained health extension workers by introducing them to the community, mobilizing the community for immunization days, providing information and counseling on contraception and family planning, and collaborating with the health extension workers to teach families to install pit latrines and improve hygiene.
