Operational in Ethiopia since 1984, CARE’s involvement into sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and maternal, newborn and child Health (MNCH) programming began in 1995 with the Family Planning and HIV/AIDS program. Since that time, CARE has gained expertise in the design and implementation of family planning and MNCH programs in Ethiopia by piloting innovative approaches, social analysis and action, village saving and loan association, mobilizing communities, encouraging behavior change communication, and engaging with government and local organizations etc. CARE Ethiopia's experience working with stakeholders at various levels to develop and implement sustainable family planning and MNCH activities, combined with global leadership in SRH, MNCH and HIV/AIDS equips CARE with the unique skills to tackle enduring and emerging issues that affect the health and wellbeing of women, men and children of Ethiopia.
