Ethiopia Country Report
RAD-AID has been working in a research and consultation role in Ethiopia since 2011. The RAD-AID Ethiopia Country Report was performed by Dr. Ezana Azene. Dr. Ali Tahvildari performed outreach radiology work in Ethiopia with support from Emory University, which was published as an overview for educational curriculum development.
Currently, RAD-AID is partnered with Black Lion Hospital in Addis Ababa through the RAD-AID Chapter at Weill Cornell. Affiliated with the Addis Ababa University’s School of Medicine, Black Lion Hospital is the training center for undergraduate and postgraduate medical students, dentists, nurses, pharmacists, laboratory technicians, and others who shoulder the health problems of the community and the country at large. The partnership between RAD-AID and Black Lion promotes an exchange of ideas and professional development for radiology residents between the two organizations.
Additionally under the leadership of Susan Sotardi, RAD-AID Ethiopia Program Manager, RAD-AID is providing education support for Black Lion technologists as the site’s first MRI scanner is being installed and used.
