Championed by Marian Haley Beil (Debre Berhan 62–64)
FOR THIS PROJECT E&E RPCVs is partnering with the respected Hesperian Health Guides, publisher of illustrated health guides for use by health workers in remote communities around the world (including the well known manual Where There Is No Doctor). Donations to our project will enable Hesperian to fulfill all book requests that they receive from Ethiopians or Eritreans in-country.
Because HIV and AIDS continue to be an incredible scourge in Ethiopia and to a lesser degree in Eritrea, our donations will also make it possible for Hesperian to include with each requested book a copy of their book HIV Health and Your Community.
Your donation of $50 will provide the funding for one set of books to be shipped to Ethiopia or Eritrea. RPCVs are urged to make a donation to honor of your “other hometown,” and join in our effort to fight HIV/AIDS in Ethiopia and Eritrea and provide the healthcare workers in our communities with the health resources they need to identify and treat common health problems, as well as address the root causes of poor health.

A Book for Midwives
