July 17, 2021Evidence Briefs
- Ethiopia is implementing Health Sector Transformation Plan since 2015 to support the implementation of universal health coverage and to attain Sustainable Development Goals.
- Evidence on premature mortality from any cause is an important indicator to see disparities in availability and accessibility to health care as well as health resource allocation across the regions, yet these evidences are often lacking.
- The main purpose of this evidence brief is to show the burden and trends of death and premature mortality rate in Ethiopia and its regions from EPHI and IHME collaborative Global Burden of Disease (GBD 2019) national and regional analysis using all available data sources.
