Connect with Ethiopian Public Health Institute:
In 2014, the Ethiopian Public Health Institute (EPHI) was established. EPHI's work builds upon the strong foundation of the Ethiopian Health and Nutrition Research Institute (EHNRI) which opened in 1996 with the goal of using health research to inform national health policy. Valid health information is crucial as the basis for effective decisions to improve health and general well-being of the population, and the government is committed to improve and develop health-related research activities in the country. EPHI's expanded operations include its enhanced role in health research based on the priority health and nutrition problems identified in the national public health research agenda.
Research priorities and health intervention programs include:
- Control of communicable diseases, epidemics, and disease related to malnutrition and poor living conditions
- Development of traditional medicine including related research and its integration into modern medicine
- Applied health research addressing major health problems
- Strengthening research capacities of national institutions and scientists in collaboration with responsible agencies
- Establish systems to support and encourage applied and basic science and research.
- Formulate mechanisms for speedy dissemination and application of research and development results.
- Establish conducive working environment and appropriate career and promotion structure for scientists and researchers.
- Encourage and support participation of Ethiopian scientists and researchers in national, regional and international conferences, seminars, symposium and workshops.
