Rwanda

For over 20 years, we’ve collaborated with the government of Rwanda and local partners to meet the country’s need for high-quality health care services by training health workers and strengthening the systems that support them.

We’ve helped the country establish decentralized health services that involve communities in defining and ensuring quality, bringing high-quality services closer to communities who need them, including services for family planning, HIV/AIDS, pediatric care, nutrition education, gender-based violence, and more.

We’ve also helped Rwanda centralize data on its health workforce so it can analyze health worker information alongside service delivery and medical record data to improve services and referrals for clients.
