Eritrea & Ethiopia: Toward a healthy future

Aug 6, 2018

HAI would like to express support and solidarity for the recent peace accord between Eritrea and Ethiopia. The historic events that took place in early July 2018 resulted in a resumption of trade as well as restoration of economic and diplomatic ties, and most importantly, a declaration to end the state of war between the two countries.  We echo the sentiments of African Union Chairperson Moussa Faki Mahamat, who commended the courageous path of reconciliation and cited this as an example worthy of emulation by all parties to conflicts and crises in other parts of the continent.

HAI advocates for the use of public health approaches to prevent and end war, as the health and well-being of individuals is tied to the peace and security of their communities. This peace accord is a huge step toward building a healthy, peaceful future for the families living in, and across the borders of, both countries.
