Every community must have access to a permanent local health center.
Too many communities have too little access to basic life saving health services. Often the communities that lack those services are the poorest ones and need those services the most.
Health Builders constructs state-of-the-art health centers where none existed before, or where existing facilities are too broken to function.
Each new health center serves a catchment population of approximately 25,000 people, though thousands more travel by foot, bike, and bus from other districts to seek care there.
To ensure sustainability, ownership of all new facilities is given to the Government of Rwanda.
We provide construction support and maintenance to the facilities we build for approximately two years after construction.
