Facts from Australia:

  • · Population just over 20 mill people.
  • · 15% live in rural areas. Good infrastructure.
  • · 1300 Ob/GynDoctors, 41,000 midwives
  • · Maternal Mortality rate 8.4/100,000 (2005)

Facts from Ethiopia:

  • · Population of 80mill people
  • · 85% live in rural areas, poor roads and infrastructure.
  • . 93% home deliveries no skilled attendant.
  • · Approx. 130 Ob/GynDoctors, Less than 2000 Midwives,
  • · Maternal Mortality over 673/100,000 (2007)
health care ethiopia
Health Care- Ethiopia.
  • Ethiopia has a total health work workforce of only 55,373 -which translates to 0.7 health workers per 1,000 population
  • WHO recommended 2.3 health workers per 1,000 population required to attain adequate coverage of essential health interventions (World Health Report, WHO, 2006).
  • Health worker density ranges from 0.24 per 1,000 population in rural areas to 2.7 per 1,000 population in urban areas.
  • This poses a serious challenge to the delivery of essential health care services in the country, especially in rural areas where the majority (83.9%) of the country’s population live and work.

Mission: “Wholehearted commitment, with God's love and compassion to women with childbirth injuries.

slide13

The greatest deficit in health sector workforce density is for physicians, with only one doctor serving 36,158 people

  • Among physicians, the shortage is most critical for surgeons and obstetricians and gynecologists, with ratios of 1:1.6 million and 1:1.8 million, respectively.
  • The ratio for midwives is 1: 57,350.
  • This strikingly low physician-to-population ratio in Ethiopia is a result of a high annual attrition rate of medical doctors, fast population growth and lack of capacity to train doctors fast enough.
