A tribute to the late Dr. Ferew Lemma
BY LAWRENCE HADDAD, TON HAVERKORT AND NAMUKOLO COVIC
Dr. Ferew was the Senior Adviser on Nutrition to the Ethiopian Minister of Health for the past 10 years. The first time we met Dr. Ferew over 10 years ago, he was deeply disappointed over some recently published nutrition data from Ethiopia. His distress made a deep impression on us: Here was someone who cared about the numbers, cared about the people behind those numbers, and cared that insufficient progress was being made for those people.
