SCOPE fellow Kefyalew Addis, of the University of Gondar, applied to the Community Service branch of the university for a grant to replicate SCOPE’s work training priests and religious women to increase antenatal care uptake and prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV/AIDS at a rural clinic in Dabat, Ethiopia.  The university has funded this project and Kefyalew is successfully implementing it.  Results will follow at the end of the project in September.
