In an attempt to improve very low levels of basic health service provision in the pastoralist areas of southern Ethiopia, Save the Children USA (SC US) implemented a health project between 2002 and 2007. Funded by USAID, the project was a component of a wider integrated pastoral development program called the Southern Tier Initiative Livelihoods Enhancement for Agropastoralists and Pastoralists (LEAP). The health project was broad in scope with objectives related to child immunization, improved knowledge on HIV/AIDS, maternal and neonatal health, and strengthening community-based health service delivery. It was implemented in Afdher and Liben Zones of the Somali Region, and the Borena Zone of Oromiya Region.
