Rwanda is one of the most densely populated, poorest countries in Africa. The 1994 genocide fueled the spread of HIV infection, with thousands of survivors contracting the virus as a result of systemic violence and rape of women. Despite the systemic poverty, the country has successfully improved health and development outcomes in the years following the genocide. The modern contraceptive prevalence rate (MCPR) has increased enormously in the past few years, but the 2005 DHS suggests 38 percent of women still have an unmet need for some form of family planning (FP), and there is limited access to long-acting and permanent methods of contraception. The Government of Rwanda has created an enabling environment for efforts to improve the well-being of the Rwandan people, with the support of the U.S. Government and other partners. While the country has demonstrated progress on many HIV and FP/RH indicators, there is a persistent unmet need for both FP and HIV services.
