Rwanda trip

In January, Dr. Ron Siemens travelled to Kigali, Rwanda to meet with all 18 other Innovating for Maternal Child Health in Africa (IMCHA) research projects funded by Global Affairs Canada, Canadian Institutes of Health and International Health Research Center.

Throughout the meetings it came up again and again how important family income was to overall health. All across sub-Saharan Africa, project teams are finding the need for strong infrastructure and community support.

It was great to see how Project Frango will be addressing such an important need and providing rich research data to help in possible scale up in other parts of Africa.
