The Urban Health Extension Program (UHEP) is an innovative Ethiopian government plan to ensure health service equity by creating demand for essential health services through the provision of appropriate health information at the household level. Even though the HEP was launched in Ethiopia in 2003 as the flagship program for the implementation of primary health care in the country, studies looking at its quality are limited. Adherence to set standards within a program is one of the parameters that indicates process quality. This paper, part of a larger survey to assess the quality of services provided by the UHEP in Ethiopia, looks at the degree of adherence of the service delivery process to the standards set nationally.
