(Advocacy for Oromia, 6 March 2016) On Thursday, March 3, 2016, the CSIS Global Health Policy Center hosted a conference on Ethiopia’s health system, its successes, and enduring challenges.

This event featured three expert panel discussions on the challenges to the U.S. – bilateral relationship, the major infectious diseases that continue to plague the country, and Ethiopia’s regional leadership in the Horn of Africa.
