Rwanda Health Private Sector Engagement Assessment

As Rwanda looks to sustain and build on its hard-earned gains in health, it faces a few vital constraints. Donor funding is declining and the Health Sector Strategic Plan III is underfunded with a likely gap of $372- $697 million. Private sector investment, which could potentially help fill this gap, is only 1.7 percent. The government of Rwanda, its development partners, and key stakeholders recognize the importance of increasing private sector engagement (PSE) as a means to accessible, equitable, efficient, and improved health services. To support the government to assess the landscape, identify potential opportunities and key obstacles, and develop a framework toward increased and sustained PSE in health, USAID/Rwanda commissioned the African Strategies for Health project to carry out the Rwanda Health PSE Assessment.
