Shaping Healthcare Delivery in Rwanda – Key Partnership with the Ruli District Hospital and The Ihangane ProjectMay 2016 - August 2016
Over the past few years, WDI has been working with the Ruli District Hospital and The Ihangane Project to improve healthcare service delivery and operations in Rwanda’s Gakenke District. The Ihangane Project is invested in the improvement of health in the Ruli area, through the provision of material, clinical, and technical assistance to the Ruli District Hospital Health System and Ruli community members.
Based on specific requests from hospital leadership, University of Michigan student teams have worked on a variety of projects to improve communication flow, cost-effectiveness and the financial sustainability of the healthcare delivery system.
In 2016, a student team from the University of Michigan’s Ross School International Business Immersion course (BA685), facilitated a hospital staff retreat to create a shared vision of high quality and patient-centered healthcare at Ruli, including an implementable framework for decision-making and problem solving.
