As leaders the world over begin to embrace the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the
Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescent’s Health, the Government of Rwanda has
moved forward to incorporate guidance from these critical resources. While we recall our success
of meeting most MDG targets for health, we look forward, building on and learning from those
achievements. In this strategic plan, we thus begin to look beyond survival, and also focus on how
to ensure that mothers and their newborn and children thrive.

The Rwanda MNCH Strategic Plan 2018-2024 is therefore closely aligned with the objectives of
the RMNCAH Policy 2017-2030, the Health Sector Strategic Plan IV and principles of other current
national policies and strategies. Of equal importance is the stakeholder input at all levels: government ministries, international partners, clinicians, Non-government Organizations (NGOs), and community health workers. Consultation with this wide range of partners was one step in ensuring that this strategic plan – and its subsequent implementation – is indeed people-centered.
