2022 Health Research and Policy Symposium
Rwanda’s health sector has achieved important milestones in addressing some of the most pressing health challenges and burdens of disease. Efforts have been deployed in different disease programs to tackle them at the prevention, diagnosis and treatment levels but long-term initiatives have also been implemented to ensure sustainable investment and universal health coverage. However, COVID-19 pandemic has challenged existing health infrastructure, which required a new strategy and unprecedent interventions to respond effectively and timely. Digital solutions have played a tremendous role from screening, case finding, isolation and COVID-19 patient follow up. Fast and physical distancing initiatives were the main if not the only solutions. Moreover, Research has played a tremendous role in shaping Rwanda’s health system. It has helped to understand and respond to the most challenging questions, to guide the design, the implementation and the evaluation of interventions and programs, and to learn from the successes and challenges from other countries.
The Rwanda Ministry of Health through Rwanda Biomedical Center in collaboration with its partners, academic institutions, will host the second edition of Health Research & Policy Symposium from 25th - 27th May, 2022, in Kigali Rwanda.
