In 2005, we began partnering with the Government of Rwanda toward its goal of health care reform and equitable, high-quality health care to all. Starting with performance-based financing as a key element of reform, we have helped to improve the availability, delivery, and quality of health services by strengthening financing and improving quality in the public and private health sectors. 


Our work has helped to enhance the resilience of Rwanda’s health sector, including bringing health insurance to more than 80% of Rwanda’s population. By addressing the challenges of human resources shortages, especially in rural areas; poor quality of services; and a high morbidity and mortality rate among women and children, our programs support the Government of Rwanda in building a sustainable health system capable of leading and managing care with a focus on health financing, institutional capacity, gender equity and social inclusion, and health information systems and data use.
