The Aslan Project and Jimma University, in conjunction with the World Health Organization, the International Society for Paediatric Oncology, and Childhood Cancer International, hosts Ethiopia's first Workshop on Children with Cancer.

Seeking to improve access, quality of care, and survival rates for childhood cancer, officials from the Ethiopian Ministry of Health and other experts have begun drafting what will become the template for a pediatric cancer infrastructure within the country. Speaking during the workshop on May 11, 2016, the First Lady of Ethiopia, HE Mrs. Roman Tesfayethe leading cancer advocate in Ethiopia, and U.S. Ambassador Patricia Haslach, lauds the efforts of The Aslan Project and Jimma University, and commits their support to ensure that our pediatric cancer program in Jimma develops into a Center of Excellence for the nation.
