EMA news

It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Dr Yigeremu Asfawu, who has been a member of Ethiopian Medical Association and founder of Bethel Teaching Hospital.

Dr Yigeremu was born in 1950 and specialized in obstetrics and gynecology at AAU in 1980 specialized with gynecology. He has been contributed to the field of medicine for more than 40 years both under governmental and private health sector. 

Dr Yigremu has been recognized to open the first Ethiopian Private hospital. He has been also contributing to medical sector by engaging with Medical Colleges and Phramatical organization. He also had known to shoulder his social responsibility to establish an organization that provides support services to Ethiopian orphans.
Ethiopia has lost a brilliant mind, a kind and gentle soul and an advocate for the development of health sector who still had a lot to contribute. We, at the EMA, deeply mourn his passing as he was an active member of the Association.

On behalf of the entire member of the EMA, we would like to convey our truly felt condolences to the Dr Yigeremus’ family, his colleagues and the many students whose lives he had touched
