The P&R team carried out its introductory visit in Ethiopia in September of 2015. Meetings were held with USG partners (USAID, USDA, OFDA, CDC/FELTP), with government officials from the Ministry of Health, Ethiopian Public Health and Ministry of Agriculture) and FAO and WHO. The objectives, service areass, and expertise P&R can provide were introduced. The Ministry of Health and Ministry of Agriculture had major requests for support, including a risk-based model and evidence to support OH advocacy, targeting high-level government officials. The MoH made a specific request for P&R’s technical assistance to finalize a OH concept note as part of the advocacy support.
