The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) is our main commissioning party. European Union institutions, the United Nations, the private sector and national governments also benefit from our services.
In Ethiopia, GIZ has been implementing development programs on behalf of the German government for over 40 years together with our national partners. The focus of our work in the country is on vocational education and employment promotion, sustainable use of natural resources, land management and food security, biodiversity and forestry. GIZ has recently started a new project in the health sector as well.
Over the last decade Ethiopia has made mayor progress in increasing access to healthcare and reducing morbidity and mortality. The focus now has shifted to more advanced care requiring higher qualifications, enhanced quality of training content and institutions and introduction of academic training. In addition, the increasing use of medical equipment and biomedical technologies requires the training and posting of biomedical technicians and engineers and a coherent national concept for comprehensive management of technical devices. This includes identification, inventory, installation, maintenance, repair and safe disposal. Also, staff needs to be trained on the safe and correct use of available technologies. There is a high need for well-trained, skilled and competent health personnel, for better-equipped teachers and trainers and more suitable training materials and trainings that match future requirements in the world of work.
