Digital Health in Ethiopia
Researchers from Regenstrief Institute and the Fairbanks School of Public Health are building and expanding global relationships and collaborations in Ethiopia in the fields of public health and health informatics.
In 2019, Brian Dixon, PhD, MPA, director of public health informatics at the Regenstrief Institute and IU Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health at IUPUI, met with leaders of the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about building informatics capacity across the continent.
Funding was announced for a U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Digital Health Activity in Ethiopia, in which Regenstrief will play a significant role.
Some of the objectives of the University of Gondar health informatics collaboration include shared research projects, mentoring and advising PhD students, enhancing exchange programs for teaching and research, and exchanging information related to instruction and training in public health informatics.
