Dilla is a Gadeo zonal town in the Southern Nations, Nationalities and People’s Region (SNNPR) of Ethiopia. Located 375 kilometers from the capital city of Addis Ababa, the Gadeo Zonal Health Department (ZHD) in Dilla town is structured like any other zonal health department in Ethiopia. There is a planning process office that is responsible for health sector planning, performance monitoring and evaluation (M&E), managing health budgets and supporting other business processes within the ZHD. The Planning Coordinator and Health Management information System (HMIS) Officer at the Gadeo ZHD is Meron Umer. With the support of the Gadeo ZHD Head, Ato Buzuneh Negussie, Meron has played a pivotal role in making Gadeo stand out.
