We aim to preserve dignity, accelerate the recovery process, and promote health equity for vulnerable patients in public hospitals.
Solid ‘Africa’s vision is Equity and Dignity for all patients in African Health Systems.
In December 2004, Rwanda implemented a new national healthcare system known as “Mutuelle de santé”. This system would allow citizen’s health insurance and medical bills to be subsidized by the government. As of today, the system works under four social categories. The first category is entitled to receiving full government coverage for health insurance, the second and third category paying 3,000 RWF a year for health insurance, and 10% of all hospital bills. The fourth category pays 7,000 RWF a year towards health insurance and 10% of any hospital bills they incur. While this mutual healthcare system may help meet the medical needs of many Rwandan citizens, those living close to, or below the poverty line, still face challenges when faced with health issues or admittance into hospital. Even with their medical bills and health insurance paid , many Rwandans find themselves in situations where they lack the means to obtain food, sanitary products and transportation fees to and from the hospital—all factors we believe severely inhibit their rightful access to healthcare.. Solid Africa is an non-profit organization that believes that a healthy nation of people in Rwanda, Africa, and the world depends on the involvement of its citizens in actions of solidarity, hence as we call it: Solid Africa.
Solid Africa aims to provide food, hygiene, and medical support to low-income patients in Rwandan public hospitals. Solid Africa has grown to provide support for different awareness programs. Solid Africa endeavours to gather members of the public; individuals and companies to create a system that thrives on intersectional help.
