Ethiopian Health Organizations

A list of non-governmental, governmental and academic organizations that are actively engaged in the health priorities of the country is available here. Small Non-Government Organizations (NGOs), associations, civil society organizations and community groups work with communities to adapt activities that ensure effective health delivery. The organizations add significantly to diversity of development and adopt innovative and new approaches in the health area. Description of each organization’s intervention program areas/activities, research focus and external resource link is available. Many of the health organizations have headquarters in Addis Ababa and operate in different regions of Ethiopia. Some of the international organizations Ethiopia have programs in other Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia and Latin America and have more resources from these countries.


The Government of Ethiopia works in partnership with bilateral, multilateral and UN organizations. The interventions of the development partners are aligned with Ethiopia’s development strategy (Growth and Transformation Plan) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In terms of health, the GTP promotes a concerted and coordinated effort to improve the quality of primary health care delivery and hospital treatment services. Thus, the development cooperation efforts are geared towards: expanding health infrastructure; developing human resource for health; improving health institutions; strengthening pharmaceutical supply and logistics management as well as building community engagement and ownership.
