Summary of Significant National Achievements


Rwanda is on track to achieving the target to halt and reverse HIV/AIDS by 2015. The HIV prevalence in the general population in Rwanda is estimated at 3% with urban prevalence (7.3%) much higher than rural (2.2%) and HIV prevalence in women (3.6%) significantly higher than in men (2.3%). These prevalence rates are amongst the lowest in the Sub-Saharan region. Identified population groups most at risk of HIV in Rwanda are HIV sero-discordant couples, sex workers, men who have sex with men, truck drivers and prisoners.


Rwanda’s response to HIV and AIDS is articulated in the 2009-2012 National Strategic Plan (NSP). The National AIDS Control Commission (NAC) is responsible for implementing, monitoring and evaluating activities related to HIV and AIDS. Civil society organizations are also included in the response and are actively engaged in the planning, implementation and monitoring of national programmes. The main focus of the NSP is to halve the incidence of HIV in the general population by 2012; reduce morbidity and mortality among people living with HIV and ensure the same opportunities for those infected and affected by HIV as the general population.


The year 2010 was characterized by positive progress in the response to HIV and AIDS in Rwanda. The successful National Strategy Application resulted in the almost complete funding of the 2009-2012 NSP thus calling for reinvigorated support to the NAC in its implementation. The rolling out of the Male Circumcision operational plan; finalization of the Prevention of Mother To Child Transmission (PMTCT) policy as well as the development of various prevention packages for key populations and the release of new data to inform planning and response provide a real opportunity for the NSP and Universal Access targets to be achieved.
