Video on Diaspora and Ethiopian Health Care

People to People (P2P), a non-governmental organization that I have been associated with since its inception, has produced a 13 minute video discussion with Ethiopian medical professionals titled Strengthening Ethiopia's Healthcare Systems: The Diaspora and Telehealth. The film has interviews with physicians at Addis Ababa University/Black Lion Hospital, St. Paul's Millennium Medical College, Gondar Hospital/University, and Bahir Dar Hospital/University.

P2P is trying to harness for Ethiopia the human capital of the global Ethiopian diaspora to address the severe shortage of physicians, health professionals and medical and health infrastructure. P2P facilitates and supports visiting diaspora physicians and professionals who volunteer time in-country to give lectures, conduct training and support their peers. P2P's activities are positive contributions to a better Ethiopia.
