Ethiopia built an army to tackle maternal mortality. This is how they did it.
When I joined the Ethiopian ministry of health in 2002, we were using a health system designed for other countries. Our tiny number of highly trained health providers was concentrated in big cities, far away from the 85% of our people who live in rural areas. This mismatch led to some of the worst child and maternal mortality statistics in the world.
We were committed to saving those lives, but it didn’t make sense to put good money into a bad system. So we built a new one. Launched in 2003 the Health Extension Program gives Ethiopians the services they need, where they need them. We trained 40,000 health extension workers to provide basic information and care to all 100 million Ethiopians. The goal was to put knowledge and power—and, ultimately, responsibility—in the hands of local people.
