Assignment period:06/01/2019 - 11/30/2019
Type of employment:full-time
The Ministry of Health in Ethiopia has invested significantly in the health sector, enabling it to improve primary health care. As the care infrastructure has expanded, however, the shortage of specialists has grown more severe. While the number of training places is rising, they are not necessarily in line with future activities and requirements of the health care system. Use of medical technology is becoming increasingly common in health care, and learning how to apply it should be included in training for health professionals. However, this training is not yet focused on developing practical skills.The GIZ programme on support to Capacity Development for Health Professionals and Biomedical Technicians therefore supports selected colleges, a biomedical workshop and a hospital in improving their quality of training for biomedical technicians and nurses. Furthermore, bringing the lessons learnt into the national policy advise ensures sustainability and knowledge sharing.Gender issues in health training and services has been revealed as a crucial area to be understood more by the project. This is according to the Health Sector Transformation Plan of the Ethiopian Government.
