Rwanda is a relatively small county that is landlocked in eastern Africa that has been recovering from the ethnic strife and genocide that occurred in the mid-1990s. Rwanda continues its long march towards rebuilding the economy with tea and coffee farming being its primary revenue sources. Unfortunately, almost two-thirds of the population subsists below the poverty line. Rwanda is often referred to as “the land of a thousand hills” and is home to the diverse wildlife that includes gorillas, zebras and other wild game.
Healthcare in Rwanda
The 1994 genocide destroyed much of the socio-economic fabric of Rwanda as well as its health infrastructure. The country’s healthcare is still suffering today. Life expectancy has been improving over the past 10 years and Rwanda does offer a state-run universal healthcare system for its population, which has helped its population become much healthier as a result. In the past decade, deaths from HIV have plummeted. While there have been significant improvements, most expatriates will want to seek medical care for serious conditions outside the country.
