Understanding subnational burden of diseases for better health policy decision making in Ethiopia
AbstractEthiopia has been progressing on key health indicators, but the conflicts and war coupled with drought and emergency conditions, and the COVID-19 pandemic could negatively affect progress (1). This special issue has highlighted substantial health gains from specific diseases and conditions over the past three decades, as well as the disparities between regions and chartered cities, and the opportunity to reduce this burden of premature mortality and disability by addressing specific diseases, risk factors, and social determinants of health. We have identified and ranked potential priorities for action that would reduce the total burden of diseases and provide relevant support for specific regions and chartered cities.
