Commitment

In 2010 Rwanda committed to increasing heath sector spending from 10.9% to 15% by 2012; reducing maternal mortality from 750 per 100,000 live births to 268 per 100,000 live births by 2015 and to halve neonatal mortality among women who deliver in a health facility by training five times more midwives (increasing the ratio from 1/100,000 to 1/20,000). Rwanda will reduce the proportion of children with chronic malnutrition (stunting) from 45% to 24.5% through promoting good nutrition practices, and will increase the proportion of health facilities with electricity and water to 100%.
At the 2012 London Family Planning Summit Rwanda committed to ensuring the availability of family planning services in each of the 14,841 Rwanda administrative villages (Imidugudu) through delivery by the 45,000 community health workers already in service. Rwanda will expand existing information and dissemination programs about family planning to the general public and will increase awareness of the various choices available. Focusing on convenience and reducing the frequency of visits to health providers, the government of Rwanda will introduce long-lasting contraceptive methods, including permanent ones, and high quality integrated family planning services in every hospital and health center.
