Nearly 100 US faculty members in various medical fields will be coming to Rwanda for one-year placements for a period of seven consecutive years.

Ambassador Goosby said the initiative aims to develop a system that will strengthen healthcare in Rwanda providing skills to medical practitioners:

“Our discussions with the President looked at sustainability and accountability of the program. We are going to work together with the Government of Rwanda to identify areas where support can make the biggest impact.

This initiative has the support of various stakeholders including the US Government, the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) and other governments like Belgium.”
