Objective: 

The project goals are to:

Specific project objectives focus on capacity development of both institutions and individuals in Rwanda's health sciences sector and include opportunities to create an enabling environment through interaction and dialog with Rwanda’s leadership.

Proposed activities to achieve these goals and objectives are in line with the Emergency Plan’s strategic principles and employ the following endorsed strategies: twinning of long-term institutional partnerships, network development, and both short and long term training
