BAHP-Rwanda: Building Academic Health Partnerships in Rwanda


This project aims to create an academic platform where local and international Non-Governmental Organisations active in Rwandan health sector can meet and exchange. The project has three main components: 1. Create an online presence on the University of Rwanda (UR) website where all NGOs are listed and profiled and relevant information like training opportunities and funding opportunities are shared; 2. Organize a yearly ‘Health NGO community day’ where students, academics Health NGOs can meet and learn; 3. Organize workshops for a limited number of participants on how to collaborate and attract funding to expand on their activities.The rationale for this project is twofold. International Health NGOs often bring a high level of technical expertise, but work in relative isolation and the expertise does not become locally embedded. On the other hand, local NGOs often work with limited funding, finding it difficult to grow. It is a longstanding request from these stakeholders that UR brings together students, academics and health NGOS around specific themes and well-defined goals
