Japan finances medical equipment for disease detection and treatment in Ethiopia

The Japanese government announced a grant of ¥300 million (US$2.8 million) to Ethiopia to support improvements in healthcare services. The country has a shortage of medical devices and hospital facilities that are able to provide sufficient cancer screenings and treatment. High prevalence of bacterial infection from h. pylori, as well as hepatitis B and schistosomiasis, compounds the urgent need for medical equipment for detection and treatment, which the grant from Japan will attempt to address.
