The Health Campaign Effectiveness Coalition is proud to spotlight its new research awardees. This week’s spotlight is on Eyu-Ethiopia.
The new NTD road map proposed a shift to integrated approaches. Ethiopia MOH aims to mainstream and integrate NTD control activities within the health system. However, a major challenge is how to implement this shift in a “real-world” setting. Integration can be detrimental due to the additional strain it causes on the health system and may fail from lack of evidence on the capacity and preconditions needed of the health system and the intervention to be integrated. The purpose of this study is to investigate the operational capacity of the Ethiopia PHC System to transition and sustainably integrate NTD interventions and identify support and acceptable and feasible strategies to partially/fully integrate NTDs campaigns into PHC.
