Rwanda

A trained health care workforce across low- and middle-income countries is key for making progress in global health and improving the health of people worldwide. Rwanda is increasingly a country where DGHI and Duke faculty are leading efforts with U.S. and international partners to train highly-skilled health care workers who can deliver quality medical care, particularly in the areas of great local need --- maternal and child health, emergency obstetrics and neurosurgery. DGHI faculty are also leading biomedical training programs in Rwanda and elsewhere to train biomedical equipment technicians on how to repair brokem medical equipment in hospitals and clinics. Through the Innovations in Healthcare, DGHI faculty are also exploring in-country partnerships for innovative health care delivery.
