The Impact of COVID-19 in Ethiopia

Policy paper

The Policy brief synthesises evidence from seven leading studies, providing an overview of COVID-19 impacts on the Ethiopian population overall, but also zooming in to specific regions, sectors, and population groups. Many of the studies are longitudinal in nature, and thus offer a perspective on the evolving COVID-19 impacts over time. The highlighted results provide a view on how COVID-19 continues to unfold throughout different sections of Ethiopian society. Each study reveals policy gaps and discusses where policy areas could be strengthened to mitigate the negative impacts of COVID-19.
