Ingobyi

With this five-year, $48.5 million grant from the US Agency for International Development, a consortium led by IntraHealth International is collaborating with the Rwanda Ministry of Health to reduce preventable infant and maternal deaths, reduce the incidence of malaria, and bring high-quality, integrated health services to more Rwandan mothers, children, and adolescents.

The activity—called Ingobyi, a Kinyarwanda word for a cushion that is used to carry a baby, new bride, or king—works in 20 districts to:

  • increase equitable access to reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health and malaria services in targeted districts.
  • improve the quality of reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health and malaria services along the continuum of care in targeted districts.
  • strengthen the performance of the health system at both central and decentralized levels.
