The State of Israel endeavors to improve the provision of service to the Ethiopian-Israeli population and to base program development on fixed goals and on the follow-up of implementation and outcomes. The Ministry of Immigrant Absorption is responsible for numerous programs and projects that address the needs of Ethiopian Israelis. Some have been specially designed for this population while others serve all immigrants. The Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute was asked to survey the Ministry programs for Ethiopian-Israelis in 2007. The Institute was also asked to examine the emphases of the Ministry, as reflected by the investment of resources in programs and various topics, against emerging trends among the Ethiopian-Israeli population.
