NEJM Article Details Rwanda’s Human Resources For Health Program

A Special Report in the current issue of the New England Journal of Medicine details Rwanda’s Human Resources for Health Program, “the largest-scale global health partnership ever initiated between American universities and a low-income country,” according to a press release from the program. “Announced by Rwandan President Paul Kagame and former U.S. President Bill Clinton in 2012, Rwanda’s Human Resources for Health Program is a seven-year, $150 million collaboration between the U.S. and Rwandan government and 25 leading U.S. academic institutions,” the press release notes. Ambassador Eric Goosby, former U.S. global AIDS coordinator and head of the U.S. State Department’s Office of Global Health Diplomacy, and Rwandan Minister of Health Agnes Binagwaho both serve as lead authors of the new article, according to the press release (11/20).
