• Developing Health Care in Rwanda | Tomorrow Today

    Rwanda's healthcare system is one of the most advanced in Africa. Almost everyone in the small African state has access to medical care thanks to a network of almost 50 district hospitals and some 200 health centers. And a general health insurance scheme means that most people can afford it, too. But some of the care provided is only possible together with international partners.

  • Rwanda has Better Health Care than America

    Ben Franklin famously said, at the end of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, that "if we don't hang together, we shall surely hang separately." That lesson of "we're all in it together" wasn't lost on Rwanda. Rwanda - a small nation in central Africa - is one of the poorest and most underdeveloped nations in the world. Nearly 60 percent of Rwandans live below the national poverty line - and in Rwanda, with an average income of just $560 per year per family - less than $2 a day - being in poverty meant bringing home and living on as little as ten cents a day. From 1990 to 1994 - the nation had a civil war - and in April of 1994 - the Rwandan Genocide began - lasting for 3 months - and taking the lives of nearly 1 million Rwandans. And yet - despite going through a civil war and a genoc...

The report indicates that Rwanda has 52 deaths per 1000 births. Rwanda’s most impressive gains, however, have been in health. AIDS has been cutting life expectancies in Africa and is widespread in Rwanda. Yet life ex-pectancy at birth in Rwanda has increased from 48 to 58 — in the last 10 years.

Ben Franklin famously said, at the end of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, that "if we don't hang together, we shall surely hang separately." That lesson of "we're all in it together" wasn't lost on Rwanda. Rwanda - a small nation in central Africa - is one of the poorest and most underdeveloped nations in the world. Nearly 60 percent of Rwandans live below the national poverty line - and in Rwanda, with an average income of just $560 per year per family - less than $2 a day - being in poverty meant bringing home and living on as little as ten cents a day. From 1990 to 1994 - the nation had a civil war - and in April of 1994 - the Rwandan Genocide began - lasting for 3 months - and taking the lives of nearly 1 million Rwandans. And yet - despite going through a civil war and a genocide - and being one of the poorest countries in the world - the tiny nation of Rwanda has something the United States doesn't - a healthcare system that works for all. Today - the new talking point coming from the Right against Obamacare is that it raises taxes. Yet, that's exactly how Rwanda went about creating a healthcare system that works for everybody. Today - only 4% of the Rwandan population is uninsured - compared to more than 16% in the United States. So how'd Rwanda do it? In 1999 - most Rwandans never had seen a doctor and even when they were really sick, couldn't get into a hospital - primarily because costs were so high that average citizens simply couldn't afford it. Knowing they had to take action - the government's Ministry of Health started a pilot project of providing health insurance in three of the country's districts. With success in these districts - the program began to spread across the country in 2004. It ran into some kinks, though. The main one was that the government set insurance premiums at $2 dollars per year - and that was too much for for most Rwandans to afford. So - then - the program shifted to a progressive tax system. For wealthy Rwandans - insurance premiums increased to 8 dollars a year - while premiums for the poor decreased - to zero. This is similar to what's in Obamacare - with poor and low-income Americans getting free Medicaid or tax subsidies to purchase health insurance at no expense. Today - the results of Rwanda's universal health care system are remarkable. Now - there is a massive network of community health workers across the country - in both cities and villages. 80 percent of AIDS patients in Rwanda are getting the treatments they need - which is really critical in a nation with one of the highest AIDS infection rates in all of Africa. Just ten years ago - before the insurance program was put in place - life expectancy was a meager 48 years at birth. Now - its 58. And - in the last 5 years - deaths of children under 5 have dropped by half - and malaria - a once debilitating and highly deadly disease in Rwanda - is now diagnosed quicker, which means life-saving treatment is provided faster.

Nkurikiyimfura is head of the HIV Clinic at the Kigali University Teaching Hospital, and credits the seven-year HRH program and the Clinton Health Access Initiative for providing the tools and resources to accelerate the training of new physicians and other health care personnel. Nkurikiyimfura states that after the civil war, the lack of professors and health care professionals slowed the process of training new physicians. The Clinton Health Access Initiative, along with Kigali University Teaching Hospital and seven U.S. medical schools—Dartmouth—created the HRH program to help address the country's severe health care worker shortage by increasing the number of faculty available to train future physicians and health professionals. In the program, faculty from Geisel and other U.S. medical schools commit to long-term stays in Rwanda in order to partner with Rwandan physicians in creating a strong medical education system. "At the end of this HRH program, we expect to have more than 500 specialists in the country, which will be a very tremendous improvement and which will bring a very tremendous improvement in the quality of healthcare of the Rwandan population," says Nkurikiyimfura.

Watch Part 1 of this interview: http://youtu.be/gcTtKvKC-5E Farmer's previous book, "Haiti After the Earthquake," describes the massive suffering and ongoing recovery effort after the devastating January 2010 earthquake that killed hundreds of thousands of people. His latest, "To Repair the World: Paul Farmer Speaks to the Next Generation," collects a series of commencement addresses that Farmer has delivered to graduating college students going back more than a decade. Throughout, Farmer urges them to confront global problems through an approach that has long guided his work: a tireless commitment to social justice and solidarity with the world's poor. Farmer joins us to discuss why he thinks a community-based health approach can help fix the U.S. healthcare system, how Rwanda's model has drastically improved the lives of its citizens, and how to tackle the massive health problems in post-earthquake Haiti.
