Rwanda Community-Based Health Insurance Support Project

Project Overview

The Rwanda Community-Based Health Insurance (CBHI) Support Project works to provide assistance to the Rwandan CBHI program through a combination of research and technical assistance activities. Along with partners including University of Rwanda's College of Medicine and Health Sciences School of Public Health (UR-CMHS-SPH), and the Ministry of Health, MSH reviews policies, information, and data related to CBHI, financing mechanisms, and benefits in Rwanda. The project has three components:

  • Examine the effect of the CBHI program on access and equity
  • Document the history of the CBHI program and identify key lessons learned in its development and implementation
  • Strengthen CBHI financial management by developing a financial management tool

This project is supported by the Rockefeller Foundation's Transforming Health Systems Initiative.
