Introduction

Social media polls have become increasingly popular in recent years as a way for people to share their opinions on various topics. They are often used by businesses and organizations to gather feedback from their customers and followers.

Social media polls may not be representative of the general population as they may only reflect the opinions of those who use social media platforms (or even a specific Social media page). However we believe that, the results of these polls can serve as an entry point for further research.

So we at Doctors Online Ethiopia want to invite stake holders and interested parties to do researches and provide a vivid image of what Ethiopian health professionals are experiencing at this point in time. We believe that this can be used as an objective input by the Ethiopian government and other stake holders to bring about positive change in the lives of Ethiopian Health professionals, which can serve as a tool for the betterment of healthcare delivery all across the country.
