The ENABLE research consortium has been awarded a generous €4 million grant from Horizon Europe to combat non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in Ethiopia.
The ENABLE consortium, a collaboration between the Norwegian Institute of Public Health (NIPH) and the Ethiopian Public Health Institute (EPHI), will kick off its mission in 2024 for a period of 4 years.
The project aims to establish a program, using evidence-based interventions, to promote healthy eating habits, increase physical activity, and reduce exposure to pollution within urban communities in Ethiopia.
This initiative will be delivered across four Ethiopian cities: Addis Ababa, Adama, Harar, and Jimma, targeting pregnant women and their children in particular.
This is a prime example of how combining public health, healthcare access, and environmental health, supported by digital tools, can significantly improve a population’s health.
This project aligns with Ethiopia’s National NCD prevention strategy and contributes to closing the global knowledge gap for implementing evidence-based interventions.
The team is led by Dr Eleni Papadopoulou (NIPH) and Dr Masresha Tessema (EPHI) as they embark on this vital mission.
