One Family Health Posts in Rwanda

One Family Health (OFH) Foundation, GSK, Ecobank, Healthstore Holdings (HSH) and the Rwandan Ministry of Health coordinate to establish 240 health posts across Rwanda over the next three years.

One Family Health

In aligning with Rwanda's Vision 2020 to bring an increase in access to high quality essential medicines and basic healthcare services especially for hard to reach people in rural Rwandan communities, GSK with its partners aim to establish 180 One Family Health ‘Health Posts’ across Rwanda in three years.

Run by experienced nurses, they provide an entry point into the formal Rwandan public health system. The model, which was successfully piloted in Kenya, gives nurses joining the franchise access to funding and training in finance management. This enables them to earn a living while also making a significant impact to the health of their local communities.

So far 65 Health Posts have been opened, treating an average of 17 patients every day and over 180,000 patients in total.
