DCP is working intensively in Ethiopia to apply DCP3 methods as relevant to inform local health priority setting, with the goal of producing an Ethiopia-DCP. This work is being done in collaboration with Addis Ababa University and the Priorities 2020 Group at the University of Bergen. This collaboration began with a focus on mapping stakeholders and opportunities in-country, which led to the enactment of a signed Memorandum of Understanding with the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) in February 2015, which focuses on two types of activities:
- Building country capacity in health economics and economic evaluations, with the goal of supporting the establishment of a health economics unit within the FMOH; and
- Establishing a process to support health policy priority setting in Ethiopia, including assessing the cost-effectiveness of selected health interventions, packages, and delivery platforms.
