Human Resources for Health Rwanda

Project Objectives

This project marks a new paradigm for cooperation between international academic institutions and academic institutions in Africa. Duke University School of Nursing is one of twelve US top-tier nursing and medical schools invited by the Clinton Health Access Initiative to partner with the the Rwandan Ministry of Health and several of the countries academic institutions to help address the critical shortage of health workers in Rwanda and build the nursing workforce necessary to create a high quality health care system. Specific aims include:

* Educating Rwandan nurses and midwives to provide exemplary care
* Providing leadership in nursing, education, practice, and research
* Graduating professional nurses and encouraging nurses to pursue advanced training and degrees
* Providing continued professional development to meet the health needs of the country's population
