The UW Community Health in Ethiopia program is offered by the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS) in partnership with IAP.

The Ethiopia Field Course will explore the intersections of agriculture, the environment, and health from multiple levels – rural and urban communities, different political regions, and federal policies – in Ethiopia. Prior to traveling to Ethiopia as well as in-country, students in the Ethiopia Field Course will attend lectures by faculty and staff from the University of Wisconsin – Madison and Ethiopian universities (Addis Ababa University, Jimma University).  In Ethiopia, students will meet and engage with diverse stakeholders from government, local and international organizations, and funding agencies in order to critically evaluate their roles in promoting sustainable development and which voices are involved in priority-setting.
