Ethiopia Health Minister Applauds Community-Based Health Insurance

On a recent visit to the Dewa Chefa district community-based health insurance (CBHI) scheme, Ethiopia’s Minister of Health Dr. Kesetebirhan Admasu recognized the success of CBHI in expanding access to care and reaffirmed his earlier announcement that Ethiopia would expand CBHI throughout the country.

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has worked with the government of Ethiopia to design, pilot, and scale up CBHI through successive technical assistance projects implemented by Abt Associates. The government places high priority on achieving universal health coverage, and views insurance coverage as a key mechanism for achieving this goal.
