The Gambella region hosts more than half of the refugees in Ethiopia and the presence of refugees plays a significant role in relations to the wider political and economic life, bringing about a lot of complexity in the relations between refugees and the local population. This action will contribute to promoting stability and strengthening basic social service delivery for host communities, refugees and other displaced population in the Gambella Regional State of Ethiopia by improving health services for all in four pilot areas and by promoting peace-building, conflict prevention and reconciliation in the region.
In December 2021, the action received a €5 million top-up considering the various needs identified in the target area.
The specific objectives are:
1. Better access to and higher quality of health services, including sexual and reproductive health and gender based violence services, for host communities, refugees and other displaced people in Gambella Regional State
2. Promotion of peace-building, conflict prevention and reconciliation in Gambella Regional State
