It is intended to support any private sector generated solutions that would improve health demand of services, introduce new technology or innovation to improve how health services are or can be delivered in Ethiopia, and finally support any ideas or solutions on how current business delivery services or support services for health (i.e. lab, etc) can be improved with a new private sector generated solution.

How can other donors support/address barriers to scale? //Signed (Original Signature on File)// Alula Abera Contracting/Agreement Officer
