Ethiopia is one of the poorest countries in the world; poverty affects most of the population with 81% of people living below a poverty line of $2 a day. Ethiopia has a difficult hostile environment which contributes to spread of disease in the country. Because of this extreme weather drought often occurs. It leaves the country with a water shortage; crops die so farmers make no money and families dying of thirst and sheer exhaustion.  
A high percentage of Ethiopia is living with HIV which leads to AIDS and then cannot be cured. The health care in the county is very poor so controlling the disease would not be an option for most. Diseases like diarrhoea kill people in Ethiopia, again because good health care is rare.

There are many more reasons as well, here are two more...
- past war
- in debt

It's mainly because of the people living there  - they are so not interested in working.
