Commitment to Action

Technology for Rwandan Healthcare

Commitment by

Amd (Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.)

In 2007, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. committed to define, architect, procure, deploy, and maintain the technology solutions necessary to measurably improve healthcare in four districts in rural Rwanda. The intent is to deploy these solutions as part of a larger comprehensive healthcare system initiated by the Rwandan government, the Clinton Foundation, and Partners in Health. In June 2008, technology was deployed in four districts with systems running at production capacity. The first phase of the commitment began in Burera district to ensure that deployment was scalable and sustainable. The site surveys were completed for all facilities in the Burera district and for hospitals in three other districts. A total of 14 sites were chosen for phase one. Kinoni and Butaro Hospital were selected as pilot sites.
