Ethiopian Pediatrics Society

Ensuring a High standard of Pediatrics Care

Serving Your Health with Excellence

Sunday, February 25, 2018

We live in a world of great inequity of access to health services to children in many developing countries with visible descriptions of high morbidity and mortality. The very few numbers of skilled human capacity, with very limited resources and staggering and slow economic development with increasing human population had made the situation of basic health care to children unreachable and unattainable.

But, despite the prevailing situations, many governments including Ethiopia have agreed on the actions and targets contained in the Millennium Declaration in September 2000 to respond to the world main development challenges. Of these Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), MDG4 targets to reduce child mortality by two-thirds by 2015 are clearly set to be measured.

It is therefore, imperative that we all need to work hard in the remaining five years together in all aspects of child health, establish favorable and acceptable working environment, friendly and acceptable policy directives and doable programs at all levels and achieve MDG4 in due course. It is only then that we can boldly say that we have given the best to children of Ethiopia. I appeal to all members of Ethiopian Pediatrics Society and to those worki`ng in child health to take hold of this opportunity and make swift actions. Surely, this is the time we should contribute what ever we have and make a difference in child survival in Ethiopia.

Best Regards

Dr. Esegnent Gedlu



Message from Executive Director

I am delighted to have this opportunity to introduce the web page of the Ethiopian pediatrics society. Our society EPS has acquired this milestone of development through the contribution of all its enthusiastic members. I hope that you will take time to become familiar with our site and with the important information we have to offer. I am very confident that this web page will further contribute to the organized and united effort towards the achievements of the society's goal.

As all our members very well know one of objectives of EPS is to advance advocacy for children's right and play an active role in both curative and preventive aspects of child health problems at a national level. The task of pediatricians in our country is huge, which cannot be alleviated by only an orthodox type of clinical efforts,
