An Assessment of the Public Sector Social Service Workforce in Ethiopia

This document presents results from an assessment that was conducted in 2013 to better understand the current status of the public sector social service workforce in Ethiopia.  The assessment process entailed gathering basic information from six selected regions, documenting common social services being provided, estimating level of social work professional skills and knowledge in public sector workers, determining the social service sector’s capacity to respond to stated social protection needs, and suggesting ways to address workforce gaps. The assessment was conducted with the expectation that reliable human resources data will assist in future planning and enable in-country stakeholders to promote evidence-based policy and programs to strengthen the social service workforce.
