What We Do
HP+ supports the government of Ethiopia's efforts to achieve universal health coverage and sustainable, long-term financing for family planning and HIV. Specifically, HP+ is:
Working with the Ministry of Health on how to ensure that subsidized health services and commodities are targeted to those who face the greatest financial barriers to accessing them, while promoting out-of-pocket contributions from those who can pay.
Exploring the potential for mobilizing new, domestic resources from a variety of sources, including insurance.
Conducting analyses to better understand how many people will be able to access key health services under various domestic financing schemes to help the country achieve and sustain high levels of health coverage.
HP+ also worked with Ethiopia's Ministry of Health and other stakeholders to update the country's costed implementation plan for family planning, which outlines the financial and human resources that are needed to meet Ethiopia's national family planning goals. As part of this effort, we also helped to build the capacity of Ministry staff to update tools used to estimate costs and impacts of Ethiopia’s family planning program.
