The Health Sector Transformation Program (HSTP) is a key component of the GTP and its primary objective is to improve the health of the population through the promotion of preventive, curative and rehabilitative health services through:

•   Improving access to affordable health services; and •   Improving the quality of health services

The HSTP prioritizes maternal and new born care, and child health, and aims to halt and reverse the spread of major communicable diseases such as HIV/ AIDS, TB, and malaria. The Health Extension Program (HEP) serves as the primary vehicle for the prevention, health promotion, behavioral change communication, and basic curative care. The HEP is an innovative health service delivery program that aims at universal coverage of primary health care. The program is based on expanding physical health infrastructure and developing health extension workers (HEWs) who provide basic preventive and curative health services in the rural community.

To assist with monitoring these objectives, Ethiopia has made considerable effort to generate reliable demographic data by conducting a series of demographic and health surveys (EDHS) which have been conducted in 2000, 2005, 2011, and 2016. The first mini-EDHS was also conducted in 2014 to measure the progress made after 2011. These surveys provided substantial information on fertility, family planning, contraceptive use, maternal and child health, nutrition and breast feeding practices, and HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.

The Ethiopia- second mini-DHS Survey (EMDHS) 2018 is designed for measuring the progress of the health sector transformation goals set under the GTP. The EMDHS will provide progress informationonkeyhealthindicatorssince2016 EDHS. The 2018 EMDHS will be undertaken on a representative sample of women in the reproductive age group 15-49 yrs.
