For more than 20 years, the Government of Rwanda has been working to rebuild its health personnel and infrastructure shattered during the genocide. With two thirds of the population under the age of 25, in 2017 Rwanda revised its commitment from 2012 to measure successful demand creation for family planning and increase total demand for contraception for married women from 72% to 82% by 2020. Traditionally, having children has been a source of pride and respect and, as a result, Rwanda is the most densely populated country in Africa. The Government of Rwanda aims to disseminate its first ever integrated Reproductive Maternal Newborn Child and Adolescent Health strategy across the country, working alongside partners to advance cost-effective implementation strategic plans and systematic monitoring for greater impact.
Rwanda FP2020 Commitment
Rwanda commits 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 longlasting contraceptive methods, including permanent ones, and high quality integrated family planning services in every hospital and health center.
