The GFF supports Ethiopia’s priorities to expand essential health services for women, children, and adolescents — particularly in underserved regions — by mobilizing communities, strengthening human resources at the primary health care level and improving supply chains, among other interventions.

Ethiopia’s new investment case emphasizes equity by ensuring safe deliveries in the lowest three performing regions Afar, Oromia, and Somali, and focuses on family planning and adolescent health. In parallel, the GFF supports health financing reforms to increase domestic resource mobilization and resource efficiency, including expanding the community-based health insurance to more districts.

GFF technical assistance is helping the government modernize supply systems for medical commodities, institutionalize resource mapping and expenditure tracking and transition the civil registration and vital statistics system to electronic registration.
