The MERIT project has engaged experts in the health-climate field, researchers and public health practitioners, to undertake operational research and explore opportunities to strengthen the public health strategy and reduce the burden of meningitis epidemics in Africa. Activities within the MERIT framework focus on the Meningitis Belt region of Africa which stretches from Senegal in the west to Ethiopia in the east. With a population of close to 300 million people, the Meningitis Belt is subject to severe and often devastating meningitis epidemics, characterized by localized outbreaks and very large epidemics during the dry and dusty season. Meningitis is one of tropical diseases found in the belt of Africa. Ethiopia is one of the countries affected by this disease. HDAMA participated actively in the International Initiative called (Meningitis Environmental Risk Information Technologies as steering committee member and by organizing different workshops and conferences in Ethiopia.
