The Government of Germany and the UN children organization (UNICEF) today hand over 30 vehicles to the Government of Ethiopia in support of the country’s health and nutrition program. The donation aims to ensure that pastoralists and vulnerable communities in Afar and Somali regions access quality, life-saving, and essential health and nutrition services through Mobile Health and Nutrition Teams (MHNTs) intervention. Also, this support will ensure sustainability of this important intervention and significantly reduce cost. MHNTs provide basic health, nutrition and emergency referral services to populations living in hard-to-reach drought-prone districts with limited or no access to public or private health care services. UNICEF: works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children.
