PROJECTS

About us


In November 2016 a group of Oromo health professionals of various background met and discussed health problems of our community in Oromia and globally. Some Oromo health professionals have been providing first Aid at OSFNA soccer tournament for the last 3 years. Although the initiative of working with OSFNA is relatively small feat, this gesture has undoubtedly inspired young students and uplifted our community. In fact, it has propelled us to think about creating a formal organization and deliver more services using our talents and existing resources.This opportunity revealed we have vibrant and committed individuals in healthcare fields that support to formally organize at global scale with hopes of networking and giving back to our community. With dedication and hard work, an organizing committee of volunteers put together the first of many IOHPA conferences which took play in Chicago in May 2017.

COVID-19 VACCINATION

Is the COVID-19 vaccine safe? What do we know about its safety?
Yes it is safe !

The nurses have been asking for more birthing beds for the last ten years. The few they have are old and rusty, which can cause disease for the mothers and babies.
