Ethiopia has made great progress in terms of health outcomes. OPM worked in close collaboration with the Ethiopian Ministry of Health and other partners to further this work and develop a health financing strategy to support medium-term achievement of Universal Health Coverage across the country.

Our expert team worked in close collaboration with the Government of Ethiopia to carry out the following:

  • Step 1: Situation analysis of the health financing situation in the country including fiscal space analysis, efficiency savings analysis, HRH analysis.
  • Step 2: set of recommendations to achieve UHC along the collection, pooling and purchasing framework used for heath financing
  • Step 3: development of the health financing strategy.

Once implemented, our strategic recommendations will help support the achievement of Universal Health Coverage in Ethiopia.
