According to Ato Abebe Bekele, Director of the Health System Research in the EHNRI
, the survey, that is prolonged for the period of one year, has an objective to evaluate and monitor the quality of health service, the coverage and magnitude of the effectiveness of the interventions in order to improve maternal and newborn service deliveries in the four populous regions.
The EHNRI is one of the two institutes that conduct research on human health, the other being the Armauer Hansen Research Institute (AHRI).
(14) Unfortunately, like EHNRI, AHRI has difficulty attracting and retaining experienced researchers; thus, it is essential that these and other institutions devise schemes to attract and retain experienced researchers.
Furthermore, according to EHNRI and FAO , the protein, fat and carbohydrate contents for cassava supplemented maize breads were found to be 3.20%, 1.70% and 44.50%.
