Rwanda Health Systems Strengthening Project


The five-year (2014–2019) Rwanda Health Systems Strengthening (RHSS) Project advanced the US Government’s commitment to inclusive growth, results and accountability, and resilience and partnership along Rwanda’s journey to self-reliance. RHSS collaborated closely with the Ministry of Health, local partners, and health system leaders and managers to strengthen capacity through extensive technical support across five strategic areas: effective leadership and governance; sustainable health financing and private-sector engagement; improved quality of care; evidence-based decision making; and a mobilized, skilled workforce. 

Implemented by MSH and its partners, the project supported the implementation of Rwanda’s Health Sector Strategic Plans and contributed to Rwanda’s Vision 2020 for a health system that guarantees universal and equitable access to quality health care for all people in Rwanda.
