Ethiopian Medical Association aims to engage Ethiopian and Ethiopian born physicians living abroad to collaborate with each other and provide support for the Ethiopian healthcare provision, by establishing EMA – Network of Ethiopian Diaspora Doctors (NEDD). NEDD advises and shares experience on high-impact interventions of the association to promote excellence in the Ethiopian health system and medical education through bringing global best practices.

The network partakes in the planning, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of high impact interventions of the association aimed at ensuring and advancing the quality of Ethiopian healthcare.

It will represents EMA in discussions and collaborations with stakeholders to optimize the education of the medical workforce, medical care, and achieve universal health coverage. The network will promote cooperation amongst physicians in Ethiopia and abroad, through the facilitation of experience sharing opportunities.
