Jhpiego began working in Ethiopia in 2003 with funding from the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). With local offices employing more than 130 in-country staff, it continues to expand its partnerships in Ethiopia to respond to the country’s ongoing health needs.
