Quality (19) Introduction: Kebede Eticha - WASH / IPC Consultant at UNICEF

4 May, 2021

Dear HIFA members,

It is my pleasure to inform you that I have joined the working group on Learning for Quality Health Services. I am a public health professional with over 20 years work experiences working for government health sector, INGO and WHO in Ethiopia. At WHO I got the opportunity to learn and document on the Clean and Safe health care facilities program and support the capacity for WASH in health care facilities improvement (WASH FIT). Recently I have been also working

for UNICEF East and Southern Africa regional office as WASH and IPC consultant which provided me the opportunity to learn and support countries with the IPC practices in the context of Covid-19.

Kindly look at the link for the documentation on the role of WASH to achieving quality universal coverage at


Kind regards,

Kebede Eticha Gela
