Bill Gates Visits Ethiopia And Shares His Experiences Via Blog And Video.


Bill Gates recently returned from a visit to Ethiopia as part of his work through the Gates Foundation and he has shared his trip via his blog and a video.


One of the things we love about individuals like Bill Gates is they are truly attempting to deal with the core issues that create poverty and high death rates in nations like Ethiopia.  Mr. Gates work in Ethiopia includes the development of agricultural programs and expanding access to healthcare.


“What Ethiopia is doing in health is really a model system because it reaches everyone in the country. I visited the Germana Gale Health Post, where I talked to several of the more than 30,000 health extension workers who have been trained in recent years to deliver basic health education, prevention, and treatment. Most of the health workers are women, and those I met were energetic and well-trained.


These kinds of primary health services—giving vaccines, educating women about family health, and promoting hygiene and environmental sanitation—is the foundation for building good health systems in poor countries. Ethiopia’s health system also includes district health centers like the Dalocha Health Center I visited. There, they do a little bit of surgery and have more expertise and a wider variety of drugs. There are also primary hospitals that focus on higher level treatment and some emergency surgery, and general hospitals that deal with serious emergencies and high-risk and specialized care.”
