Major Organizational Challenge

Beside of the wider community awareness, government policies and strategy and the funding opportunity calls launching by the donors are very tights compared to other intervention than a commitment made in response to Parkinson’s disease, PD patients and their caregivers. Likewise, the burden of the diseases and the number of PD cases are increasing from time to time that need additional efforts and all-inclusive concerned party’s engagement. But, PPSO-E is still exposed to encore expenses for office rent (that might able to response extra PD patients care and support matters) that to be needed for program expand its service and reach PD patients in Addis Ababa and all over the country.
