Rwanda has made progress towards the improvement of healthcare by committing to the Millenium Development Goals and it's vision 2020; the country's development blueprint. The goal of these programs is to transform Rwanda into a middle-income economy, while providing high quality services to its citizens.

 

Rwanda's health care reform, and increased spending, have resulted in the improvement of key health indicators in the country. Despite these achievements, the country still needs to address a shortage of midwives, supplying sufficient medical equipment to it's rural clinics, and increase spending on health care.

 

Our work

We are working with rural health centers in Bugesera to contribute towards 3 areas:

  • Addressing the shortage of medical equipment.
  • Improving midwifery skills to in-service nurses.
  • Improving conditions of maternity wards.

What we have done
We funded the purchase of basic medical material needed for 4 health centres in Rwanda and purchased them from suppliers of medical equipment in Kigali. Equipment was donated to Gihinga Health Centre, Kamabuye Health Centre, Gakurazo Health Centre, Nzagwa Health Centre.
