Project Overview : The Rwanda Health System Strengthening (RHSS) Activity aims to support the delivery of high-quality health services at sustainable cost for all Rwandans.

Rwanda has led the developing world in declines in infant mortality, child mortality, and maternal mortality. However, much needs to be done to sustain these health gains and further reduce infant and maternal mortality to meet the goals of the Health Sector Strategic Plan (HSSP) III. In contributing to these goals, RHSS will build on the success of the former Integrated Health Systems Strengthening Project (IHSSP) by continuing to work with the Government of Rwanda and Rwandan Ministry of Health to build their capacity to plan, lead, and implement strategic interventions aimed at strengthening key health system structures and processes, while building country ownership.

RHSS aims to strengthen health systems thinking; engage public- and private-sector stakeholders and build ownership; increase overall financial resources from domestic sources; improve the efficiency of allocation of resources for health using evidence-based planning and budgeting methods; institutionalize continuous quality improvement through accreditation and performance-based financing; and promote data use, knowledge management, and health systems research to identify high-impact interventions; and inform policy and strategy development.

The project, which is funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID), began work on November 17, 2014. MSH will be working with the following partners: Banyan Global, an international development consulting firm; Jembi Health Systems,a regional nongovernmental organization (NGO) based in South Africa; Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine; and the National University of Rwanda School of Public Health.

MSH has worked continuously in Rwanda through USAID-funded projects since 1983. Recent projects have included the HIV Performance-Based Financing (HIV/PBF) project (2004-2009), which developed an incentive-based financing system for all Rwandan facilities. The Integreated Health Systems Strengthening Project (2009-2014) further strengthened the country s health system by reinforcing multiple health system building blocks: financing, information, quality of service delivery, and governance.
