The devastation caused by COVID 19 has been catastrophic. As we are witnessing how High-Income countries are struggling to contain and control this pandemic, we cannot imagine the damage it will cause to low resource countries like Ethiopia. We at Ethio-American Doctors group (EADG) are encouraged by the sweeping actions that are being taken by the Ethiopian Government however we are particularly concerned about the safety of the Health care professionals because of the limited Personal Protective Equipment availability and shortage of testing for COVID 19.
EADG has started a campaign to raise funds to support with PPE, and initiated professional experience sharing opportunity for our colleagues in Ethiopia with physicians here in the USA, who are currently managing the severely ill COVID patients. This experience sharing opportunity will be provided via Webinar, daily at 3 PM Addis Ababa time.
