The Challenge

Too many communities have too little access to basic life-saving health services. Often the communities that lack those services suffer from extreme poverty and need those services the most.

The Solution

Health Builders designs, builds, equips, trains and sustains health facilities to increase access and improve health outcomes.

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. To ensure sustainability, after construction ownership of all new facilities is given to the Government of Rwanda. In addition, Health Builders provides construction support and maintenance for the facilities we build for approximately two years after construction.

Health Centers

Health Builders has built seven health centers from the ground up - with many of the paid workers being women from the local community. The health centers provide comprehensive health care to 250,000 people formerly without it.

Health Post Projects

Health Builders is a key member of the Ubugingo* Project, a partnership with Active Social Architecture (ASA) Design Ltd to achieve the goal of providing 1,600 health posts by 2050, in accordance with Government of Rwanda's 2050 Sustainable Development Goals. Health posts, the smallest link in Rwanda's health care chain, play a crucial role in ensuring that all Rwandans have access to clinical care.

Maternity and Delivery Wards

We have also created two Maternity and Delivery Centers, monitored by trained clinicians and the tools for emergency interventions ensuring hundreds of births in a safe and comfortable environment.
