This article describes the strategies, human resource developments, service delivery modalities, progress in service coverage, and the challenges in the implementation of the Ethiopian Health Extension Program (HEP). The Ethiopian approach of revitalization of primary care through innovative, locally appropriate and acceptable strategies will provide important lessons to other poorly resourced countries. It is hoped that the approaches and strategies described in this paper will aid in that process.
