exciting developments in Rwanda…

HRH Program :: Rwanda.

The link above will take you to the site that details the plans for Rwanda’s ambitious Human Resources in Health (HRH) plan to improve medical education and, consequently, the quality of healthcare.  The gist of the HRH plan is that foreign educators will be brought in to begin trainings and as time passes knowledge will be transferred ultimately resulting in construction of a sustainable means for Rwanda to continue progressing independently.  A big rush of foreign trainers at the outset, and at the end a group of skilled Rwandese able to take over as trainers.  No need for me to explain the details here, the site is comprehensive and well organized and includes information for how to apply to get involved.  As PURE is an NGO, and multi-institutional effort(not a single university) we are not able to be formally affiliated with the HRH plan.  However, we are excited at the prospect of helping to incorporate ultrasound training into appropriate educational programs.
