The least that can be told about the socioeconomic progress that has been made by Rwanda during the last few years is that it is outstanding. Significant improvements in health outcomes and other key development indicators including improvements in livelihood at the community level have been observed. As a matter of fact, life expectancy at birth has increased from 51 years in 2002 to 66 years in 2015 and under-five-infant mortality has plummeted from around 200 per 1000 live births to approximately 50 in 2014. These improvements are partly due to the WHO Country Cooperation Strategy (CSS) and for that the Republic of Rwanda is grateful.
