The State of Israel strives to improve the provision of service to the Ethiopian-Israeli population and to base planning and operations on defined objectives and the follow-up of implementation and outcomes. The Ministry of Immigrant Absorption is responsible for numerous programs and projects aimed at Ethiopian Israelis. Some of these have been specially designed to meet this population's needs. Others address all immigrants. The Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute was asked to survey the Ministry programs for Ethiopian-Israelis in 2007. The study examines both the avenues of Ministry action - in the light of the trends in the Ethiopian-Israeli community, and the question of knowledge â" from an integrative perspective on the administrative information systems and the research done on the programs' implementation.
