Policy Advocacy

HDAMA is implementing this project with support from its members and volunteers, in addition to resources obtained from various organizations and individuals. It supports vulnerable children to pursue their primary, secondary as well and postsecondary education – providing them with all their requirements (food, clothing, sanitary care, psychological support, etc.). One approach is the Foster Based Approach, which aims at supporting them while they live with close relatives or fosters; and the other approach is to admit them to a Girl's Group Home Support Center where they will be provided educational support. The Association has, with this respect, realized, and is realizing the dreams of many girls. HDAMA provided educational support to vulnerable children and supported over 160 vulnerable girls to pursue secondary education in a group home seating. Policy Advocacy activities conducted by HDAMA aim to influence decisions within political, economic, and social institutions. It includes activities and publications to influence public policy, laws, and budgets by using facts, their relationships, the media, and messaging to advocate government officials and the public. HDAMA’s Advocacy effort can include many activities that the organization undertakes, including media campaigns, public speaking, and Lobbying decision-makers on public health issues to persuade both grassroots and grasstop structures

HDAMA is at the forefront of efforts to advocate public health policies, quality, and effectiveness of emergency response worldwide. With funding from a variety of donors including UNFPA, USAID, CTFK, GHAI, Global Fund, French Government, and MoH

HDAMA has already been engaged in addressing some of the risk factors associated with NCDs, identification, and mitigation of the risk factors. Its media and communication campaigns to increase awareness of the smoke-free provision and its effective implementation in the public places of Addis Ababa City Administration; and media advocacy campaign on food policy and transfat elimination were some of the advocacy interventions HDAMA has embarked on and piloted. Given the empirical data above and the continued rise of the NCDs and their massive burden against the vulnerable groups of society, upholding and expanding (considering additional geographical locations) the ongoing interventions on NCDs becomes imperative. On the other hand, HDAMA’s past track record in implementing projects on NCDs and solid experience in SBCC, networking efforts with likeminded organizations; and its contribution to the introduction and implementation of Tobacco control proclamation in Ethiopia puts HDAMA in the right position to upscale projects in the areas of NCDs, through grassroots and grass top media and communication advocacy.
