March 8, 2016

This report looks at the tax reforms Rwanda has introduced over the past two decades to increase domestic revenue collection and the impact these changes have had on the health sector. By reorienting its government expenditures towards basic health and education, Rwanda is demonstrating that it recognizes the socioeconomic value of building a healthy and educated population

USAID’s Health Finance and Governance (HFG) project improves health in developing countries by expanding people’s access to health care. Led by Abt Associates, the project team works with partner countries to increase their domestic resources for health, manage those precious resources more effectively, and make wise purchasing decisions.
