Description:

The Health Service Extension Programme (HSEP) is an innovative approach to addressing the shortfall in health human resources in Ethiopia. It has developed a new cadre of Health Extension Workers (HEWs), who are charged with providing the health and hygiene promotion and some treatment services, which together constitute the bedrock of Ethiopia’s community health system. This study seeks to explore the experience of the HSEP from the perspective of the community who received the service. [from abstract]
