Improving Health Services for Nomadic Pastoralists in Ethiopia

Nomadic pastoralists in Ethiopia are often unable to access basic services including health and education, due to living in remote areas, migrating regularly with livestock, and having distinct cultures and traditions.

Health Poverty Action is improving health and maternity services and reducing maternal deaths among pastoralist communities in the remote Bale Lowlands of Ethiopia.

You can help us to provide vital training to health staff and life saving maternity equipment, and to pilot the first HIV testing service in the area. 25,000 women, 19,000 young people and 25,000 men will be able to access improved health services, which will in turn reduce sickness and deaths from preventable causes.
