50 years of Ethio-Swedish Collaboration in child health and nutrition

A chronicle with recollections and personal experiences

This presentation of recollection and personal experiences from the ESPC and ENI is made by Professor Emeritus Yngve Hofvander. He was working as a pediatrician at ESPC (1958–1962) and as Director for ENI (1965–1967). Professor Hofvander has been called “the father of FAFFA”. The aim of this chronicle is also to illustrate if the Sida financed projects had played a role in the establishment of improved child health care in the country. Sida supported ESPC 1957–1974 and the ENI, 1962–1992. They are both still up and running, today without Swedish support.
