Improving Urban Health in Ethiopia

More than one half of the world’s population currently lives in cities. By the year 2030, an estimated six out of every ten people will be living in towns or cities, with the most explosive growth expected in Asia and Africa. Of these around one third of urban dwellers live in slums, informal settings. Although Ethiopia is the least urbanized country in the world, it has experienced steady urban development during the last half of the 21st century. With an urbanization rate of 4.7 percent per year, Ethiopia is predicted to become one of the most populous urban nations in Africa by 2050.

The Center for Urban Health Development-Ethiopia is committed to advancing urban health in Ethiopia and sharing lessons learned from global and national initiatives. The Center serve as a knowledge hub (information center) for urban health in Ethiopia. As such all available urban health materials, will be collected, stored and shared to individuals and organizations working on urban health.
