RUTANA November 18th (ABP) – A new health sector support project was officially launched on Wednesday in Rutana in the presence of the provincial governor, provincial executives and health stakeholders, a check in Rutana (south-east) by ABP has revealed.
Named “Twiteho Amagara”, this 3-year project is being implemented in Rutana province by the NGO Christian Aid on a European Union funding. This project will be carried out in three areas: strengthening the health system, sexual and reproductive health, and emergency and disaster management.
According to Dr. Marc Ndayiragije, the medical director of the Rutana health province, the strengthening of the health system consists of multifaceted support to health care facilities to help them provide quality health care, including biomedical equipment. He stressed that this is a sigh of relief because the project will grant two ambulances to two health districts of the province. He added that in addition to those two ambulances, two supervision vehicles will be made available to the districts, which will make it possible to closely monitor the activities that will be carried out at the level of the health care facilities.
Regarding sexual and reproductive health, the health province director was asked if there is no overlap between this project and the one which has already been working on this component. The doctor said that this is their role as regulator. He noted that the project that was working on this component and executed by CORDAID-IADH had taken two health centers per commune but that with the new project they will proceed with the extension to other health centers.
