A day that may have previously included many steps, physical activities like walking from your car at your workplace parking lot twice per day, shopping for groceries, outings with the family or visiting shopping mall are absent for many. With this unprecedented lifestyle shift, there is a potential for the normalization of a more sedentary lifestyle packed with activities like watching television, sitting while reading for long periods, or sitting at your computer for longer-than-usual periods of time. We must stay proactive, and in some cases creative, to maintain an active lifestyle in the era of social-distancing. Even if you are not directly affected by COVID-19, or tested positive, it no doubt has had a drastic impact on your day-to-day routine, which could negatively affect your overall health.

Ethiopian Social Accountability Program 3

The Ethiopia Social Accountability Program Phase 3 (ESAP-3), being part of the Enhancing Shared Prosperity through Equitable Services (ESPES) program, seeks to improve basic public service delivery of local governments in assisting to make services better attuned to the needs and priorities of citizens.

The development objective of ESAP-3 is to support strengthening the Social Accountability (SA) system and mechanisms for enhanced service delivery in Ethiopia. Thus, the ultimate target is service improvement in any of the five identified basic sectors where SA is considered a critical means to intervene. The more specific objective of ESAP-3 is to enhance the dialogue and feedback loop between basic service users and service providers on the quality and accessibility of services.
