More Ethiopian children surviving

More Ethiopian children surviving | African News | Scoop.it
Ethiopia has more than halved its mortality rates for children under the age of five years during the last two decades, new UN statistics show.

 

Ethiopia's Health Minister Kesetebirhan Admasu said increasing household incomes had helped improve people's health.

 

 

"This has also resulted in better nutrition for children [and] women; this has translated into better sanitation - all these have direct or indirect impact on the survival of children," he told BBC Africa. He said the government has also been "aggressively expanding its primary healthcare network".

 

 

"We have now 93% coverage of one health centre for 25,000 people, which basically means one health facility within a 7km (four mile) radius," he said.
