Yale joins in AIDS initiative

Yale Medicine Magazine, 2006 - Autumn


Public health faculty at Yale will work with the William J. Clinton Foundation HIV/AIDS Initiative and the Ethiopian Ministry of Health to launch the Ethiopian Hospital Management Initiative to improve management of the public hospital system in Ethiopia.

Under this initiative, mentors from the United States and other countries will work with directors of 10 to 12 public hospitals and health bureaus in Ethiopia to identify systemic changes that can improve provision of health care to the country’s 76 million people.

“We want the Yale-Clinton Foundation mentors to think outside the box, tell us what they see and what they recommend, and then we will consider it,” said Adhanom Ghebeysus M.D., the Ethiopian minister of health, who proposed the collaboration.

Elizabeth H. Bradley, M.B.A., Ph.D., associate professor of public health, directs the project at Yale. The Yale team has completed a needs assessment in Ethiopia and has recruited the 22 fellows to serve in this effort, which began on July 1.
