Our employment service supported several Harvard Schools' contributions to the Rwandan government's health care workforce capacity-building program and poverty-reduction program.
Aiding the Development of a Sustainable Health Care System and Childhood Resiliency
Deploying clinical faculty and instructors to teach and train personnel in Rwanda was a key component of the Rwandan government's Human Resources for Health (HRH) program. Our memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the government specifically enabled us to employ Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Dental Medicine faculty to support that program.
For a federally-funded Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health project, we were able to provide employment thanks to an economic and technical cooperation agreement between the governments of the U.S. and Rwanda. The agreement allowed for the mutual support of economic development in each country this included hiring expatriate workers and providing exemption from certain employer and employee local income tax regulations so that we could employ and pay via our U.S. entity.
