Abstract: The maternal mortality rate in Rwanda has decreased significantly in the last 10 years, largely due to a government health insurance scheme that has increased the population's access to quality health services even at a grassroots level. This is in stark contrast to the situation in other East African countries, where the achievement of this key Millennium Development Goal has proved to be a daunting task. In this episode, Kimasomaso will also talk to some university students in Rwanda who have embarked on an HIV awareness campaign.
