Who is The New Amhara Region President Dr Ambachew Mekonnen Federal Minister of Agriculture the Director General Ethiopian Food and Drug Administration Heran Gerba, and the Deputy Director of USAID Ethiopia’s Health Office Ms. Sophia Brewer called on the assembled guests to celebrate both the launch of EFDA and of the new electronic Regulatory Information System (eRIS). EFDA replaces the previous Food, Medicine and Health Care Administration and Control Authority (FMHACA) and has taken on the additional responsibilities of licensing health professionals and regulating and certifying health service delivery establishments. The electronic Regulatory Information System (eRIS) launched at the event is an open source, locally-developed and maintained software system that ensures that EFDA can maintain an unbroken chain of information from licensing and registration to import and quality assurance. This means that EFDA can track medicines all the way from international (or local) suppliers to the ports, to the Ethiopian Pharmaceutical Supply Agency’s (EPSA’s) warehouses and finally to each clinic across the country. One of the pillars of the Ministry of Health’s strategy to transform the health sector is the “Information Revolution” which seeks to employ cutting-edge methods and practices for collecting, analyzing, presenting, and disseminating information that can influence decisions in the process of transforming the health sector. The healthcare supply chain that connects drug manufacturers to patients is dependent on agile systems to ensure medicines get to where they are needed, when they are needed. The EFDA plays an essential role in this revolution and in ensuring that these facilities have the quality medicines and health products they need. USAID and its partner John Snow Inc. (JSI) have been working with the Ministry of Health throughout the past 25 years to improve the health of Ethiopians. The United States is the largest bilateral donor to Ethiopia’s health sector, with approximately USD $150 million per year in funding for HIV/AIDS; malaria; maternal, neonatal and child health; nutrition; tuberculosis; and water, sanitation and hygiene. Overall, the United States has provided approximately $4 billion in development and humanitarian assistance to Ethiopia over the past five years

This is the concluding part of our article, Ethiopia: A year after protests started – Timeline of events [1] which took a retrospective look at the events in Ethiopia a year after anti-government protests broke out. In this piece, we start from late August when Ethiopian athlete Feyisa Lilesa made an anti-government protest sign to win bronze at the Olympics. We go through UN and rights groups’ call for independent probes into the deaths. The African Union spoke on the portests, the European Union leader had her say as did German Chancellor, Angela Merkel. After deaths at a thanksgiving festival – the Irreecha in Bishoftu – and subsequent protests that followed, the government imposed a state of emergency in between time and then a government reshuffle followed. displayAdvert("mpu_3") I welcome a national effort, but believe the Government should also consider the need for an independent, impartial and international effort to affirm or revise the allegations.
