As of 2018, Ethiopia is the second most populous country in Africa due to its estimated population of 108 million citizens. Unfortunately, recent reports have stated that over 37 million Ethiopians live in poverty and do not have access to essential basic needs. Food prices and the cost of living continue to rise, and many families are unable to care for their loved ones in a healthy manner.
Health conditions in Ethiopia have improved markedly in the last decade, with government leadership playing a key role in mobilizing resources and ensuring that they are used effectively. A central feature of the sector is the priority given to the Health Extension Program, which delivers cost-effective basic services that enhance equity and provide care to millions of its residents. Ethiopia has demonstrated that low income countries can achieve improvements in health and access to services if policies, programs, and strategies are underpinned by ingenuity, innovativeness, and sustained commitment at all levels. An example is the development and rapid implementation of the Ethiopian Health Extension Program.
Our world class medical center and rehabilitation programs will be available to the community twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. Though our programs, our staff members will be able to address a variety of medical services that include maternity and child services, cardiac care, cancer and HIV/AIDS treatment, surgical needs, women’s care, diabetes, and river blindness. In addition, we have also established a variety of educational and nutritional programs.
We will implement a sound health program for the country’s people, while noting that it is only healthy Ethiopia who can contribute to the growth of the economy. It is not just about creating a modern medical facility in this great city of ours. It is about our commitment to systematically improving the health and well-being which is one of our areas of focus. We believe that every Ethiopian has a right to quality healthcare. We also believe that it is our collective duty to rally our resources to improve health infrastructure, support the development of health care professionals, and improve preventive health measures in Ethiopia
Our activities are overseen by a group of well-qualified individuals. Our diverse staff members have ties to the community, and thus possess the unique ability to relate to the target demographic. Additionally, our Board of Directors is comprised of a professional group of talented individuals who are dedicated to committing their time and resources to building a stronger community.
Yeabe Medical Center & Rehabilitation strives to serve as many people as possible with the resources we have available – every individual is important to our organization and we will not discriminate against anyone. By offering services that are concentrated on serving those less fortunate and addressing the greatest needs of our target community, we can make a positive contribution in helping the people we work with lead a more fulfilling life
Our integrated health care program focuses on improving maternal, neonatal and child health; voluntary family planning and reproductive health; preventing, controlling, and treating infectious diseases including HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria; increasing access to clean water and sanitation; and improving the nutritional status of women, infants, young children and men.
Yeabe will provide medical services to economically disadvantaged people in Oromia region and Addis Ababa in Ethiopia. Yeabe will educate all people of ages how to have a healthy lifestyle. Yeabe is seeking funding to build a hospital and rehabilitation center as well as program administrative costs and operational costs by the ends of 2018.
Yeabe is currently pursuing a new development, in affiliation with Tikur Anbessa(Black Lion) Hospital located in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. In Ethiopia, most are aware of an epidemic of acute and chronic kidney failure. Diabetes and High-Blood Pressure are two of the main culprits that are common diagnosis prior to kidney failure. Tikur Anbessa Hospital, arguably the biggest hospital in Addis, Alarmingly contains only one dialysis machine to provide for a city with a population of approximately 4 million. Yeabe Medical is dedicated to this cause. We are aspiring to create a new wing, a dialysis wing, within Tikur Anbessa, fully staffed and with 30 dialysis machines. While prevention of kidney failure is a top priority within the medical community, we are striving to accommodate those in dire need of dialysis to produce a longer and better standard of living. In collaboration with Mass Design group, an architecture company with African progression in mind, we estimate completion of this project within 5 years.
