Ethiopia to build US$51m hospital in Amhara Regional State
The Amhara Regional State in Ethiopia has embarked on an array of activities to raise funds for the construction of the Wollo Tertiary Health Care and Teaching Hospital. The estimated cost of the construction project is US$51m.
The project will consist of a three-storey building for the hospital, two storey building for teaching, and three apartments each with three-storey accommodations for dormitories and housing for teachers.
The hospital will be constructed in Wollo, 5KM from Diessie. The design was done voluntarily by tripartite architects who included Haile Gebriel Consultant & Architect and Engineering Plc, Mat Consultant, and Universal Consultants.
The State of Amhara is located in the northwestern and north-central parts of Ethiopia with an estimated population of 14 million people. Most of the communities there engage in agricultural activities. This region is one of the largest in Ethiopia, and the move to construct the hospital is aimed at making health services readily available in rural areas.
Although Ethiopia has a free universal primary health care policy, most women in rural areas have to walk for many kilometers to access these services.
The Ethiopian government has made great strides in accomplishing its millennium development goals of which providing quality healthcare is part.
