Comprehensive Evaluation of the Community Health Program in Rwanda
Sustainable Development Goals: 3, 16
- SDG 3 - Good Health and Well-Being
- SDG 16 - Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
The objective of the evaluation is to understand whether the CHW program has achieved its intended objectives, thus contributing to the overarching objectives defined in the HSSP III of improving the health status of the population by “Ensuring universal accessibility of quality health services for all Rwandans”. This evaluation has focused on CHWs, who are selected, trained and deployed by the MoH to deliver a defined set of tasks at community level. CHWs are the central element of the Community Health Policy and of the community health strategy plan (CHSP) of the MoH.
This evaluation assesses the Community Health Program (CHP) implemented in Rwanda and its effects on maternal, newborn, and child health throughout the country. The evaluation summarizes the policies, plans, and implementation strategies of CHP.
