points and shared the International Health Regulations (IHR)
plan with Ministry of Health (MoH) officials on April 17th.
The MoH has in place a System Integrated Disease and
Surveillance Response that tracks twenty-three diseases
(including malaria) nation-wide. Information is also
systematically collected at the Kebele (village) as well as
Woreda (district) levels by health workers. There is also a
government of Ethiopia (GoE) Avian Human Influenza
Preparedness and Response Task Force, which is organized into
three subcommittees of varying capacities: resource
mobilization, disease prevention, and control
advocacy/communication. PolOff, Sinnitt and Yilma met with
Dr. Berhanu Amare, Avian Influenza Coordinator, and Dr. Daddi
Jima, the Associate Head of Vector-Borne disease Prevention
and Control Team. We were instructed to direct any further
follow up questions to Dr. Kebba Jaiteh, Ethiopia's Emergency
