Medical Mission Sisters have been responding to the needs of the local people in Attat, Ethiopia, for 45 years. Attat Hospital is our base. It and its extensive integrated health services cover a population of 800,000 people. In addition to in-patient care, women’s groups, water and sanitation activities, village first-aid stations and leadership training are offered. Attat Hospital also is a center for HIV/AIDS therapy, counseling and testing, and provides home-based care for persons living with AIDS.
