EPHA Conducts Health Research Methods and Ethics Training


The Ethiopian Public Health Association (EPHA) conducted Health Research Methods and Ethics Training from July 21-30, 2014 in Bahir Dar town.

Twenty-one health professionals have participated in the training. The trainees were recruited from Addis Ababa, Mekelle, Debremarkos and Debrebirhan universities, Amhara Regional Health Bureau, Gonder zonal health department, and the Red Cross Society.

The training was designed to assist health professionals to improve their capabilities in research designing, planning and implementation. As part of the training, the trainees developed a research proposal.

EPHA has been providing health research methods and ethics training with the objective of improving the understanding and skills of researchers and practitioners in designing and conducting operational research at different levels. Some 450 members of EPHA have been trained in health research methods and ethics since the training program was launched in 2006.

The Health Research Methods and Ethics Training has been conducted in collaboration with the Ethiopian Public Health Association (EPHA), Federal Ministry of Health (FMoH), and Regional Health Bureaus (RHBs), with the financial support from the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
