Universal healthcare in Rwanda

A great article in the New York Times about the health care system in Rwanda that has boosted life expectancies by ten years, greatly increased the percentage of those with AIDS who receive treatment, and let doctors treat malaria before patients are near-death in a hospital.

Andrew Makaka, who manages the health financing unit at the Ministry of Health, said that only 4 percent of Rwandans are uninsured.

It’s sad that the United States can’t boast about covering as many of its citizens.
