Health & Medical
Ethiopia ACT is a community-based organization that places a high priority on public health interventions. We aim to create connections by empowering, partnering and engaging the community in the process of transformation.
We design innovative and effective health strategies, particularly in the area of HIV/AIDS treatment support, but also in other public health areas like tuberculosis, cervical cancer, child malnutrition and sanitation.
We seek to reduce the impact of inequitable access to health care in a resource limited setting by “backing-up” the local medical system and encouraging health-seeking behavior in communities where we serve. With the partnership of short-term medical experts, we are able to reach out beyond our beneficiaries to the broader community and local churches and we influence the existing health system to provide care to those who have health needs not otherwise being addressed.
