Implementing organisation: Welthungerhilfe Regional Office Horn of Africa Country: Ethiopia Contract sum: € 1.148.457,00 Project start: 10.01.2008 End: 30.09.2010

Short Description:

Overall goal


Gode, Kelafo, Mustahil and Adanle woredas are very isolated with weak infrastructures and very limited basic social services. The total estimated population is about 377.356, the majority are nomadic or semi-nomadic pastoralists. Due to very poor socio-economic conditions, insufficient financial resources, inadequate number and quality of health personnel and low management capacity health service coverage and quality as well as health indicators are far below Ethiopian national average.


The overall objective is to improve the health status of the population in the intervention area, by strengthening the health services delivery and the quality of care. The project will be conducted within the framework of the Health Sector Development Program (HSDP) and of the Regional Health Development Plan (RHDP). The methodological approach is based on the provision of technical, logistic and financial support to Woreda Health Departments of the area of intervention, who together with Welthungerhilfe will conclude the remaining implementation period of the project as started by CCM in 2006 under project no. 1986-00/2006.


Welthungerhilfe is responsible for jointly planning, implementing, monitoring and evaluating the health activities. Especially children below the age of 5 and women in reproductive age (together 41% of the population) will benefit by the improvement in health services. Moreover, the project will address the problems related to Harmful Traditional Practices (HTP) and to HIV/AIDS through Social Mobilisation activities.


The aspect of capacity building for the health system will be given special attention.
