Program and Position Overview

The Government of Rwanda (GoR) strives to achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC) by enabling equitable access to quality health services for the population as outlined in the Fourth Health Sector Strategic Plan (HSSP IV).

The goal of those programs is to support the Government to accelerate progress towards UHC by ensuring the sustainable delivery of quality, essential health services.  This includes work to prioritize and sustainably finance essential services, to improve financial protection through the Community Based Health Insurance (CBHI) scheme, and to support improved management, financing, and delivery of quality primary health care.
