Rwanda Health Systems Strengthening Project
The Rwanda Health Systems Strengthening (RHSS) Project (2014-2019) represents the US Agency for International Development’s (USAID) continued commitment to supporting Rwanda on its journey to sustainable improvements in the health of its 12 million people.
The overall goal of the RHSS Project was to support the Ministry of Health to improve population health outcomes. The project did this by strengthening the performance of the health system at the national and decentralized levels. It also increased the resilience of the health sector to respond to new health challenges, such as decreasing outside funding to the health sector or the recurrent emergence of Ebola in the sub-region.
Implemented by Management Sciences for Health (MSH) and its partners, the project supported the implementation of Rwanda’s Health Sector Strategic Plans and contributed to Rwanda’s Vision 2020 for a health system that guarantees universal and equitable access to quality health care for all people in Rwanda.
