Partners In Health is an international nonprofit organization founded in 1987 that helps build and sustain public health systems in underprivileged and underserved communities in ten countries around the world. At the invitation of the government, Partners In Health/Inshuti Mu Buzima began operating in Rwanda in 2005. Our mission is to support Rwanda in strengthening the health system to provide high quality care to all. We envision thriving communities of healthy, happy, and productive people, where social justice and universal quality health services are available.
We work to strengthen the Rwandan health system through designing innovative health care delivery, building health care workforce capacity, and leading global health research. In order to improve health outcomes and bring care to more people we implement, evaluate, and scale innovative approaches to care across a wide range of clinical and social support programs. By training practicing health care professionals in Rwanda and educating the next generation of global health delivery experts we are building Rwanda’s capacity to provide high quality, equitable and innovative health care closer to patients. Our impact reaches beyond Rwanda as we conduct and disseminate research to improve health care delivery and advocate for evidence-based policy change.
