Ethiopia Sets Example in Health Education for Other African Nations
Published in the Emory Report.
How can African countries build a sustainable health care work force to combat the serious health problems confronting their populations?

Ministers of health, education, science and technology from 10 African governments convened in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to discuss the importance of health education training in building strong, sustainable health systems and to learn how Ethiopia, through its partnership with The Carter Center, has built a unique system designed to train qualified health workers to meet the needs of the country.
