Community Health Program Investment Case in Rwanda
UNICEF supported the Ministry of Health to develop a business case for investing in Rwanda’s Community Health Program.
Community Health Programs are a cost-effective intervention that can contribute significantly towards attaining the health-related Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. Rwanda is among the few countries that successfully implemented the Community Health Workers program, which provides a set of promotive, preventive, and curative health services to the population.
UNICEF supported the Ministry of Health to develop a business case for investing in Rwanda’s Community Health Program. The business case shows that the benefits of investing in Rwanda’s Community Health Program go beyond the health sector and could yield short-, medium- and long-term benefits across several sectors, especially the economy and beyond, and provides a strong justification for the country to increase domestic funding for its Community Health Program to reap the multi-sectoral benefits.
