We had a very full day and a warm welcome in Addis. The focus of our trip is to look for ways to increase VOA broadcasting in Ethiopia.
— Dana Perino
Our hope is that we will be able to expand VOA broadcasting in the critical areas of development and health, especially maternal health. Healthy moms make for a healthy society.
Ethiopia has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the world - more than 25,000 women die each year from pregnancy-related complications.
