The main priority of the model kebele concept is to ensure that responsive services to local needs are fully available to every individual and family in the village. The global aspirations of universal health coverage will be realised in Ethiopia through community engagement and ownership, which in turn depends on the number and quality of model households and kebeles. This will bridge the gap in health outcomes within and between communities and bring quality health services without catastrophic cost to every citizen.
