Who We Are

Rwanda Non-Communicable Disease Alliance

Rwanda Non-Communicable Diseases Alliance is a unique civil society network, founded in 2016 and uniting 25 organizations ( NCDs Patients, health care professionals and youth-led organizations and private institutions) working on NCDs in Rwanda.

TECHINICAL WORKING GROUP

More than 1000 volunteers already affiliated with RNCDA. The volunteers have a health background. They are young and well educated (normally they are recent graduates and university students). They are much eager to serve as well as bringing back what they have acquired from universities to the communities. However, few of them have received proper training in NCDs and data collection, and more have to be recruited through the already existing network of RNCDA and its member organizations.
