Ethiopia, Healthcare, and NGOs

From The Official Blog of Amb. David H. Shinn Wed Nov 28 2012, 20:32:00

The Ethiopian NGO, People to People, asked me to make remarks on 27 November 2012 at a symposium on medical education and healthcare in Africa hosted by the University of Kentucky. My remarks cover the massive health care challenges in Africa, the role of NGOs in healthcare coordination and advocacy and the impact of the brain drain.
