Presentation Given on Education Development Army in Higher Education

It is common these days to hear about development army, education development army, health development army, and reform army etc…in Ethiopia. What all these naming have in common is `army`. The freedictionary.com defined army as `a large group of people organized for a specific cause’. What the phrase `specific cause` in this definition refers to in Ethiopia`s context, is being able to extricate from poverty.


Some of the participants

In all sectors and aspects of life, people understand the need to act in an organized manner for this noble cause. Cognizant of this fact, Ethiopian Civil Service University organized reform army two years ago. The reform army is organized in three tiers: university level, institute or center level, and department, team or unit level.

ECSU has gone through a lot of ups and dawns before the idea of reform army reaches to the level where it exists now. People used to think that it is a kind of management tool like BPR or BSC, and it is introduced on the expense of these tools. In order to avoid these misconceptions, consecutive trainings and awareness creation meetings, and discussions were held at the university. It is after all these efforts that the concept of reform army became deep rooted in the university.

“Over 60 per cent of HIV positive people across the globe are women,” said Yasmine Abu-Ayyash, Project Assistant, at the ECSU Center for Gender and Development. She said this as the World AIDS Day was observed by the university community on December 4, 2013.

In a message sent through his Executive Advisor, Demis Merid, President of ECSU, Dr. Hailemichael Aberra lauded Ethiopia’s successful fight against HIV which brought the infection rate down to 1.5 per cent. In the past ten years the number of people who died of AIDS in Ethiopia has decreased by 53 per cent. The president called upon the university community to protect themselves from HIV and contribute their share in the fight against the deadly virus.

Project Assistant, at the ECSU Center for Gender and Development on her part said women are more susceptible to HIV AIDS as they are economically dependent on men and they don’t have the power to refuse or negotiate for safe sex, especially in marriage. She indicated that the prevalence of HIV is higher in countries where there is high sexual violence.

Yasmine Abu-Ayyash said violence against women constitute many forms; any violence that results in physical, mental or sexual, emotional psychological sufferings to women. She added in most cases, such violences are perpetrated by their intimate partner or family.
