Ethiopia's key to safer births? Better roads.

Ethiopia's key to safer births? Better roads.

Source: Christian Science Monitor

More than 70 percent of Ethiopian women have said transportation and distance prevented them from giving birth in a health facility. But Ethiopia's push for a modern road network is changing that.

Mosebo, Amhara Region, Ethiopia — From the booming capital of Addis Ababa to Ethiopia’s remotest border regions, excavators are busy scraping earth, making way for roads that will finally connect the far reaches of this largely rural country.

Ethiopia’s full-court press toward a modern road network is certainly a boon to its industry and agriculture. But it may also help Ethiopia shed its notoriety as one of the worst places to be an expectant mother or a newborn. Women name distance and transit as two of the greatest obstacles to accessing health services.

Ethiopia’s maternal and newborn mortality rates are among the world’s highest, though its maternal mortality rates are declining faster than anywhere else on the continent. Many deaths are caused by childbirth complications that could be handled by someone with medical training. Sanitation is another problem. Yet more than 60 percent of women still give birth at home, according to government estimates. (Some international aid groups estimate that number is closer to 80 percent.)

What is Christian Science monitor has to do how we live in Ethiopian ? These are the WOREST enemy of Ethiopian people and specially when it comes to our Orthodox Christianity which they Christian science groups a member of KKK and New Nazi who are now turning our population to their fealty homoxxx and lesbxxian. Religion like Penti, Gehova, Protestant etc. which all of them are anti Ethiopia . We should burn down these phadoxxphile ,lesbxxan, and homxxmo religion and throw them out of Ethiopia soil and those of them who turn to these faulty groups must go through baybtaisem at ABAY river.
We must have our eyes open why these groups operate in Ethiopia freely, specially in Amhara region and we know from the past what these groups did to Aborigine of Australia and india in north America. They are now operating in Amhara region and giving a birth control pill to as young as 12 years girls and injecting a population control poison to decline the majority of orthodox Christians in that region. They have got a green light from weyannes govt. Whose PM HM is a pint,Gehova and Protestant member . And declared the unseen new way of Genocide by injecting poison to young Amhara population. These thing is going on since the new PM took office and here we have a CSM writing about the new born mortality and so on.

We should warn our population specially the Amhara who are now being experiment by these groups and other parasites charities and NGO. Nothing good comes from these groups.
They are planting a time bomb to destroy the Amhara population. Wake up my beloved true Ethiopia. They are distributing children’s foods that contain radio active and other harm full to pregnant women and even in the name of UN ,they inject a virus that will activate in 5-10 years and become deadly contiguous disease that will wipe the entire community of Amhara.
The weyanne govt.full of DEDEBS have no idea what these groups activity in country is but as long as they are free in Amhara densely populated area they give them a free hand to do what ever they want on our christian Amhara population. The secret war on Amhara population started a few years ago and no one knows how far these parasites charities and NGO are doing their deadly experiment in that region.

Ethiopia could have surpassed building it’s industry and highways a long long time ago . We could had landed Abeshas on the moon . Even sent rockets to the outer reaches of the solar system.
The tiny legged creatures called TPLF with the help of shintam Arabs and their western masters would have non of it. They destroyed the infrastructure . They literally bombed bridges . The real Ethiopian governments before the hyena Woyames did not have a chance building anything . That was what our local and world wide enemies wanted.
TPLF had built Mekele Institute of Technology , imitating Massachusetts Institute of Technology. While ethnically dividing the real Ethiopians. So that they could not march foreword with the ready of the world. But, judgement day is coming.

Sodo-Jodo!!

Nice dream bro. yes indeed we could have ruled the world and probably the universe too, if they tiny legged TPLFs didn’t venture into our territory. The big legged fathers of ours were doing miracles after miracles in constructing the buildings, the dams, the hospitals, the schools.. and the research and development tasks to explore the space including the moon. Alas these tiny legged creatures came and thwarted all these projects and took ethiopia back to the stone ages. Our fat legged fathers were in power for more than 800 years and unlike their predecessor ethiopian rulers (like the Zagwe and Axumite dynasty) didn’t waste thier time and power in chanting “Fukera", “Kererto” and “Shilela". Well done our fatty legged fathers.

You sound like you never lived in Ethiopia. Why don’t you go back and witness the changes, roads construction, schools, hospitals and clinics almost everywhere. Citizens working and making money. I bet you wont even be able to recognize your own village.
As Lazy Observer said The development continues, go to Ethiopia and be part if it. but also ask your self what can I do for my country, the level of poverty is too deep and don’t expect Ethiopia to be one of the richest from one day to the next.

You’ve reached a point of no return, certified wacko. Your twisted paranoid mind is rather amusing. In fact, many of the people who post comments look forward to reading your insane conspiracy theories, it is sheer entertainment. However, as your brain degenerates further, next stage is transformation into a zombie. You become contagious and must be quarantined. I will expedite straightjacket for your loved ones to put you in it until CDC arrives.

I think you must be suffering from unknown mental disorder that CDC in Atlanta could not find the source of it. You better take your proxxxzac and wash your stinky mouth.

What nonsense you are talking . Your conspiracy theory doesn’t give any meaning. It is very premature and no body accept your conspiracy theory. The pentes,the protestants and the Jehovah witnesses have all the right to live in Ethiopia. Mentioning the name of PM HM in your conspiracy theory also doesn’t give any meaning. Let me tell you something the size of evangelical Christan community in Ethiopia has reached to the level you can’t subjugate as minority. Anything you try to instigate such type of hostility will not work any more.

Those homxxmo,lesxxbian and phadophile religion that you mentioned are nothing but a parasite to Ethiopian pure people’s. You will be babtaiesed once more in ABAY river no matter how many millions you are. If you refused then that will be the last day you put your stinky feet on pure Ethiopian holy land. You will be deported some where where your phadoxxphile ,homxxmo religion belongs to ….west. We will burn down your false church to ashes. No human right, UN, Obama will save you a zzz.

This is Ethiopia for pure Ethiopian and it’s pure culture.
