Rwanda has an ambitious programme to improve access to and the quality of healthcare for a population of 4.7 million, across six of its 12 provinces. The programme has received the backing of a Global Fund grant worth initially $14.3m over a first two-year phase, and up to $33.9m over a full five-year term. The agreement was signed yesterday in the Rwandan capital, Kigali, by Dr Innocent Nyaruhirira, minister of state for HIV-AIDS. Rwanda - described as "one of the most successful implementers of Global Fund grants" - has received a total of $91m from the Global Fund to tackle AIDS, TB and malaria.
