This chapter reviews Ethiopia' response to its HIV epidemic. Overall, the government of Ethiopia has shown great commitment in tackling the problems posed by the HIV epidemic in the country. The magnitude of the epidemic in the major urban settings appears to be stabilizing or even lessening, but in rural settings it is on the increase. Although much effort has gone into overcoming the problems described above, much still needs to be done to strengthen these efforts, particularly to reduce the effects of HIV in rural areas. This will call for more national, international, and bilateral organizations to work together.

Keywords:   rural settings, HIV epidemic, rural areas, national organizations, internatinal organizations, bilateral organizations
