Ethiopia has a ten year national reproductive health strategy and a child survival strategy in place. There exists a Ministry of Health led health, population and nutrition sector coordination group, which incorporates a child health coordination mechanism. In order to satisfy the high demand for health workers in communities, the Ministry of Health in Ethiopia has put in place a Health Extension Support Program based on the deployment of trained Health Extension Workers (HEW) to communities. The Partnership has also been very involved in Ethiopia. It has participated in numerous meetings with principle donors and partners about how to harmonize coordination mechanisms and how to increase funding.
