The Ministry of Health, the Embassy of France to Ethiopia and to the African Union, the Delegation of the European Union to Ethiopia and Expertise France have delivered a first batch of medical equipment at Dessie Hospital to support the resumption of essential health care in the Amhara region.
The equipment handover ceremony will be attended by representatives of the Minister of Health in Ethiopia, the Ambassador of the European Union to Ethiopia, Roland Kobia, and the Ambassador of France to Ethiopia and to the African Union, Rémi Marechaux.
The first medical equipment handover will strengthen health recovery initiatives in Ethiopia and represents the starting point of a project aiming to provide support to ongoing stabilization efforts in the country. The project is jointly funded by France and the European Union for a total amount of 5 million euros. It is implemented by Expertise France, the French public agency for the design and implementation of international technical cooperation projects, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, Amhara Regional Health Bureau, and Dessie’s Hospital medical staff. This joint initiative will seek to promote the resumption of essential service provision for conflict-affected communities in Ethiopia.
