Chapter 17 describes the establishment and development of a patient-centred healthcare delivery platform in Rwanda, breaking geographic barriers by ensuring equitable distribution of health facilities aligned to the administrative structure of the country, and also by mitigating financial barriers with a community based insurance system that has provided coverage for more than 90% of the population by 2011. It emphasizes the importance of a holistic approach to providing care that is community based, driven by Rwandan leaders with international support, and being part of the wider development of the country.
