Global PHC Programs
The Global PHC Programmatic Area of IPHC-E is the outward-facing section of the Institute that aims to share Ethiopia’s best experiences in PHC with other low- and middle-income countries while at the same time taking lessons learned from other African countries and sharing it with Ethiopia.
The exchange of best experiences is done to strengthen the PHC system of other low- and middle-income countries while also supporting Ethiopia’s PHC system. This will be done by utilizing an evidence-based, scientifically sound, up-to-date, participant-centered, innovative model of capacity building to strengthen the PHC system of the client countries. Moreover, a designed online and onsite support (using a mentor embedding model) targeted to offer the right amount of assistance depending on the country’s need. It strives to give the client countries the tools to mobilize all the resources necessary for strengthening PHC systems including HR, financial resources, political will, etc.
