At the invitation of the government, we began operating in Rwanda over ten years ago. We work to strengthen the health systems in rural areas, serve as an adviser to the Ministry of Health, and drive innovation in health care delivery.

Cancer Care

We are proving that it’s possible to implement a model of high quality cancer care in a low resource, rural setting.

Infectious Disease

We implemented a community-based accompaniment approach for HIV/AIDS and TB that pairs medical interventions within a wide range of basic health and social services.

Non Communicable Diseases

Noncommunicable diseases lead to more deaths globally than all other causes combined. Our integrated approach to NCD care makes it feasible in low-resource settings.

Child Health

Every child deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential. We work to decrease child mortality by ensuring children have access to high quality health services.

 

Women's Health

We work to eliminate preventable maternal deaths by improving the quality of obstetrical care, timely access to care, and quality of family planning and counseling.

Community Health

Community health workers help patients to overcome barriers to healthcare by accompanying them throughout their treatment.

Mental Health

We work to bring high quality mental health care to those who need it by implementing a model that is effective in rural low-income settings. 

Livelihood

By treating root causes of illnesses such as food insecurity and homelessness we are working to end the poverty-illness cycle.

 

Right to health care

We help patients overcome barriers to accessing quality health services at the tertiary level and beyond.

Nutrition

Malnutrition contributes to nearly half of all deaths in children under five globally. We train health professionals to treat malnutrition in hospitals, health centers, and in patients' homes.

Health Promotion (Twiyubake)

We work to increase the resiliency of vulnerable populations to adverse circumstances by promoting health-seeking behavior and connecting households to available services. 

health INFRASTRUCTURE

We strive to redefine how health facilities in poor and rural areas are designed because everyone deserves to receive care in a beautiful, well-equipped facility. 

 

Health informatics

We work to improve the quality of data collection, usage, and sharing to further empower health care professionals and encourage data-driven decision making.

Women and Girls Initiative

We work to eliminate barriers to education for girls and support them to become economically independent. 

In global health, we often know the right thing to do but struggle to know the right way to do it. Achieving success requires new resources, innovation, and research about implementation methods.
