Rwanda Contributes One Million Dollars to International Health Fund

March 8, 2002

The Rwandan government contributed $1 million to the world health fund aimed at fighting the HIV/AIDS pandemic, tuberculosis, and malaria, the Rwandan minister of health, Dr. Ezekias Rwabuhihi, said while meeting with health experts in Kigali earlier in the week. "Rwanda, joining the world health fund, will enable the Rwandans to access the AIDS drugs cheaply and also get enough drugs to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, which claims more people in Rwanda than any other disease," the minister said. "Rwanda has already set up a committee that will study such programs that shall be presented to the fund for assistance," Rwabuhihi said, adding that the committee will present the projects to the fund no later than June this year.
