• 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...

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.

New innovative interventions and evidence towards malaria elimination in Rwanda: Experience from MEPR project in Ruhuha sector in Bugesera (2011-2016) Year submission was created 2016 Abstract Summary: 200 word description of the media content. The purpose for which it was produced (research, advocacy, education) and how it will contribute to enhancing evidence and skills building in health systems research. This documentary talks about Malaria Elimination Programme in Ruhuha/Eastern Province of Rwanda. In 2011, the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research/ WOTRO Science for Global Development provided competitive research funds for four years research project titled Malaria Elimination Program for Ruhuha (MEPR). The main objective of this project was to strengthen human capacity development within health sector. The programme aimed at demonstrating the multifactorial conditions of malaria in a community, that community participation helps health systems towards malaria elimination and demonstrate that communities can develop sustainable health interventions in a self-learning environment. The programme consisted of four interrelated PhD projects, referred to as the ‘four pillars’ addressing issues related to behavioral sciences, biomedical sciences, entomology and health economics. The targeted site of this project was Ruhuha sector located at about 42 km from Kigali, the Capital of Rwanda. It covers an area of about 56 square kilometers with a population estimated to be 19,606 people. The sector is divided into 5 cells and 35 villages with 5,661 households. It is drained by four main wetlands transformed into irrigated rice fields, while seasonal crops occupy the fifth wetland. Malaria was previously reported as high endemic and a serious problem. Due to the government interventions through the distribution of Long Lasting Insecticide treated nets (LLINs) with achievement of universal coverage (one LLINs for two persons) and Indoor Residual Spraying with more than 97,5 % coverage for each Indoor Residual Spray (IRS) round, as well as malaria case management, the burden of malaria was declined drastically. Despite use of these effective interventions the prevalence of malaria has not reached the phase of pre-elimination as stipulated in the National Malaria Control strategic Plan (2013- 2018). Among potential innovative actions taken for a detailed diagnosis of the problem and the appropriate solutions included the usage of a bottom up approach instead of the vertical approach deployed through an Open Space method as well as the creation of “Community Malaria Action Teams (CMATs) in the framework of Behavior Change and Communication; vector control interventions from the design, the planning and implementation of activities as well as the introduction of microbial larvicide named “Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis” (Bti) for larval source management. Other innovative interventions included tackling foci of malaria infection, evaluating and establishing immunological aspects of chronic parasitemia. This bottom-up approach was found useful in engaging the local community, enabling them to explore issues related to malaria in the area and suggest innovative solutions for sustainable malaria elimination gains.

Medtronic Philanthropy supports Partners in Health as they work with the Rwandan Ministry of Health to create a model for NCD management, helping train nurses and community healthcare workers on prevention and treatment of chronic diseases. It is an approach that is flexible and cost effective, and can be replicable in other developing countries.
