CSIS Report Examines Ethiopian Government’s Response To Political Unrest, Implications For Women’s, Children’s Health

Center for Strategic & International Studies: Imperiling Progress: How Ethiopia’s Response to Political Unrest Could Undermine Its Health Gains
In this report, Janet Fleischman, senior associate, and Katherine Peck, program manager and research associate, both with the CSIS Global Health Policy Center, examine how political unrest and the Ethiopian government’s response “now threaten to derail its notable but fragile progress in women’s and children’s health. The current crisis also exposes the shortcomings of U.S. policy in Ethiopia; while providing substantial funding for health and development and maintaining close security ties, U.S. reluctance to hold its longtime ally accountable for its repressive tactics could put these investments at risk” (11/3).
