Private Health Sector Project (PHSP)


About the Private Health Sector Project in Ethiopia

The goal of the Private Health Sector Project is to contribute to the reduction of the burden of public health diseases in Ethiopia. PHSP supports the private health sector to expand the availability of high-quality health services and strengthens their capacity to take a prominent role in the prevention and treatment of family planning, reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health, HIV, malaria, and tuberculosis in Ethiopia. PHSP works in eight regions and two city administrations–Oromia, Amhara, Benishangul-Gumuz, Gambella, SNNP, Tigray, Afar, Dire Dawa, Harari, and Addis Ababa.
