Emory Nursing Maternal and Neonatal Health in Ethiopia Partnership

Where We Work

MaNHEP works in six woredas or districts in rural areas of Oromia and Amhara Regions of Ethiopia. In Oromia, they are Degem, Kuyu, and Werejarso woredas of North Shoa zonal administration (see 1 below). In Amhara, MaNHEP is working in Mecha, South Achefer, and North Achefer woredas of West Gojjam zonal administration (see 2 below). These six woredas were selected by Ethiopia's Ministry of Health because of their high maternal and newborn mortality rates and capacity to serve as lead woredas (see Approach).
