Ethiopia Child Survival Project - Essential Services for Health in Ethiopia (ESHE) (2003-2008)
The ESHE project, funded by USAID, aimed to improve family health in Ethiopia. AED carried out nutrition and behavior change program activities under the project, including working with newly established volunteer health promoters at the community level. Volunteers were trained to promote "Essential Nutrition Actions" such as breastfeeding and the use of iodized salt. The ESHE Project reached an estimated 6.5 million direct beneficiaries in 60 focus woredas (20 in each of three target regions).
